(KGTV) - Feeling lucky? The Mega Millions jackpot lottery soared past $433 million for Friday night’s drawing.

No ticket matched all five numbers and the Mega Ball Tuesday night. Three tickets matched the five white balls and are worth $1 million each. The tickets were sold in Florida, New Jersey, and Oklahoma.

The jackpot was last won in Ohio May 4, with a prize worth $142 million. The money was collected by ABC XYZ trust, according to lottery officials.

The prize has only crossed the $400 million mark seven times in its 16-year history, officials said. The top Mega Millions jackpot was $656 million in 2012.

Mega Millions tickets cost $2 per play. The drawing will take place at 11 p.m. ET, 8 p.m. PT.
