It won't be known until later if there is a victor from numbers drawn Friday of 28-30-39-59-70-10. The biggest Mega Millions jackpot was in 2012, when three winners split $656 million.

And that's prompting people to buy more tickets rather than just one.

A single ticket in Florida won the $450 million jackpot. Tickets in California, Massachusetts, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas also matched five numbers.

The odds that you'll win the $450 million jackpot in Friday's Mega Millions drawing are really, really bad.
