Mega Millions winning numbers announced for $420 million jackpot

The winning numbers drawn for Friday's Mega Millions jackpot are 27, 28, 32, 41 and 69 and the Mega Ball number is 12. The jackpot is $420 million, with a one-time cash option of $237 million.

The next drawing will be Tuesday. 

Tickets cost $2. Sales time cut-offs vary by state but are usually one to two hours before the drawing.

There was no winner in Wednesday's Powerball drawing, pushing Saturday's jackpot to $253 million. 

But don't get your hopes up yet: Even with more options for giant payouts, the odds of winning a jackpot remain abysmal at 1 in 258.9 million for Mega Millions and 1 in 292.2 million for Powerball.

The odds of winning both jackpots are 1 in 75 quadrillion -- that's 15 zeros -- according to data scientists at Allstate.

The average American spends about $200 a year on lottery tickets, though residents of some states spend far more. According to a study by LendEDU, the average Massachusetts resident spends $735 annually on lottery tickets. Rhode Islanders plop down $514 a year. And if you live in Delaware or New York, you're likely spending about $400 a year, or $33 per month.

The odds of winning "scratchers" -- those little instant winning tickets that you can buy for prices ranging from $1 to $50 -- are better, but it's still no way to get rich.
