A Mega Millions jackpot that was up for grabs Friday night worth an estimated $560 million will grow again after no big winners were drawn – the first of two substantial lottery drawings to end the week.

Friday’s winning numbers were 10-24-48-51-66 and the Mega Ball was 15.

Four tickets across California, North Carolina and South Carolina each hit the first five numbers to take home a $1 million prize, the lottery said. The South Carolina ticket earned $2 million for playing a 2x Megaplier.

But don’t worry if things didn’t go your way with that drawing. There’s another whopper offered on Saturday: a Powerball prize estimated at $875 million, according to the Powerball website.

The Powerball prize is the third-largest in its history, officials said this week. A grand prize hasn’t been won since April 19, and it has “rolled over” 36 times since then.

Both lotteries had drawings this week that failed to produce grand-prize winners. Both are played in 45 states.
