The Mega Millions jackpot stood at $450 million, with a $281 million cash option, at mid-day Friday, according to its official website.

The winning numbers in Friday night's drawing were 28-30-39-59-70 with a Mega Ball of 10. The biggest Mega Millions jackpot was in 2012, when three winners split $656 million.

In 2013, an 84-year-old Zephyrhills woman was the victor of the largest single jackpot in American lottery history, valued at $590.6 million.

Powerball and Mega Millions tickets are available at Hoosier Lottery retailers.

A single ticket in Florida won the $450 million jackpot.

This was the fourth largest jackpot in the 15-year history of Mega Millions.

Players have plenty of time to purchase tickets for both drawings. Powerball odds are one in 292.2 million. Powerball tickets may be purchased until 9:45 p.m. on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the Powerball jackpot continues to rise ahead of its drawing on Saturday night. In 2016, the Lottery provided a record $888.9 million to help support Michigan's public schools.
