Friday might be your lucky day.

After not drawing a winner on Tuesday, the Mega Millions jackpot grew to nearly half a billion dollars.

On Friday, numbers will be drawn again to find a winner of the $490,000,000 jackpot.

According NBC News, officials said more than 19.2 million winning tickets have been sold at all prize levels including 27 worth at least $1,000,000.

Following Tuesday’s drawing of the numbers 20, 43, 51, 55, 57 and 04, four tickets matched five white balls to win the game’s second prize of at least $1,000,000.

Officials said no one has matched all six numbers to score the jackpot since Sept. 15.

According to NBC News, winners can receive the entire $490 million annuity which is awarded over 29 years, or an immediate reduced, lump sum of $372.3 million cash.
