CBS News Miami

MIAMI - MIAMI - Mega Millions jackpot has climbed to $393 million after no ticket hit it big in Tuesday's drawing.

The winning numbers were 13-19-43-62-64 and the Mega ball was 6.

One ticket sold in Florida matched all five numbers, but not the Mega ball number, to win a million dollars.

If there is a sole winner on Friday, they have the choice between an annuity, with an initial payment and then 29 annual payments, or a one time lump sum payment. Most winners choose a cash payout, which for Friday night's drawing would be an estimated $181.5 million, before taxes.

The top Mega Millions jackpot to date was $1.537 billion won in South Carolina in 2018. It's followed by a $1.348 billion ticket that was sold in Maine in January and a $1.337 billion prize last July.

Mega Millions drawings are held on Tuesday and Friday, tickets cost $2. The odds of winning the jackpot are about 1 in 303 million.
