The Mega Millions jackpot has risen to $565 million, making it the sixth largest in the game’s history.

If you beat the long odds, you could soon have the ultimate stocking stuffer.

The Mega Millions jackpot has risen to $565 million after no ticket matched all six numbers drawn last week, according to the lottery, which was announced on Saturday.

If someone wins the jackpot in the next drawing, it will be the sixth-largest prize in the game’s 20-year history, Mega Millions announced in a news release on its website.

The white balls 15, 21, 32, 38, and 62, as well as the gold Mega Ball 8, were drawn on Friday night. Although no ticket matched all six winning numbers, two tickets sold in California and Illinois matched five of them and took home the game’s second-largest prize.
The most recent Mega Millions jackpot was won on October 14, when tickets sold in California and Florida shared a $502 million prize.

In the two decades since Mega Millions began selling tickets, 11 jackpots of $500 million or more have been won, with three exceeding a staggering $1 billion.

The current record jackpot for the game is $1.537 billion, which was won by a lucky ticket buyer in South Carolina on October 23, 2018.

According to the website SmartLuck, the odds of winning the Mega Millions lottery are one in 302 million. The next drawing will be held on December 27.
