Odds are stacked against players matching all six numbers needed to hit the mother lode, the lottery game’s top prize has reached an estimated $1 billion for Friday night’s drawing. The cash option — which most winners choose over an annuity — is $739.6 million (pretax). The jackpot also is the third-largest in U.S. lottery history.

The Mega Millions jackpot has been climbing since mid-September when someone scored $120 million ($95.4 million cash) and the top prize reset to $20 million. That’s 37 weeks of no one matching all six numbers in twice-weekly drawings, marking the longest stretch ever with no winner, according to lottery officials.

If you’re playing Friday night, GOOD LUCK!
