Anticipation is growing along with the zeros in the Mega Millions lottery winnings. The prize hit $1.6 billion after no one won the jackpot in a drawing on Friday night.
That's the largest lottery jackpot in history, surpassing the $1.586 billion Powerball prize in January 2016.
Mega Millions lead director Gordon Medenica called it "uncharted territory."
A winner who wants the money in a lump sum can opt for the cash option of about $905 million.
The next drawing will be on Tuesday at 11 p.m. ET.
