Scribbled Arrow

The numbers are drawn in the Mega Millions jaw-dropping $1.28 billion jackpot prize, the third-largest in U.S. history.

It’s unclear yet if there were any lucky winners defying the 1 in 303 million odds to claim the life-changing prize. 

The winners can choose to take home of $1.28 billion over 29 years or a lump amount of $747.2 million in cash, which amounts to $457.5 million after taxation.

After 29 consecutive draws in a row, since the first jackpot was won on April 15th, the prize increased to become the second largest in Mega Millions history.

The prize on Friday was so big that it broke ticket vendor signage in New York City, which only has three-digit slots, followed by a message that says "millions."

A Manhattan Deli employee estimated that ticket sales could be up to 35 percent of regular ticket sales before the draw.
