DENVER (KDVR) — An estimated $1.28 billion is the total for the Mega Millions jackpot on Friday night, which is also the second-largest in history. The cash value of the jackpot is $747.2 million.
The total has increased to this amount because it hasn’t been won since April 15. The largest jackpot was a $1.537 billion prize won in 2018 from a ticket bought in South Carolina.
