    The prize increased slightly Tuesday from $449 million. The jackpot will be the largest since a $429.6 million Powerball prize won by a New Jersey family May 7. The largest Mega Millions jackpot ever was $656 million, which was drawn by tickets in Kansas, Illinois and Maryland.

    No ticket matched all six winning numbers on Friday, which meant there was no Fourth of July weekend windfall after 33 consecutive drawings.

    The record prize for a U.S. lottery was a $1.6 billion Powerball jackpot won in January by players in three states.

    Mega Millions is played in 44 states, plus Washington, D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Nevada, Utah, Mississippi, Alabama, Alaska and Hawaii are the only non-participating states.
