The ticket, which matched the five numbers drawn Tuesday, but not the Mega Ball, was sold at Big's Aztec Corner Store in San Antonio.

The huge cash prize continues a trend - the second-largest jackpot was a $1.586 billion Powerball drawing on January 13, 2016.

It costs $2 to play the game.

Mega Millions tickets for Friday's drawing may be purchased online at MichiganLottery.com and at the Lottery's 11,000 retailers around the state until 10:45 p.m.

On Friday, that would be a total of $565 million - before taxes, according to the Mega Millions website.

If one ticket matches the numbers, the victor would win $1 billion or more than $565 million if the victor goes with the one-time cash option.

Lottery officials increased the grand prize just hours ahead of the Friday night drawing. You'd be more likely to be struck by lightning or attacked by a shark.

The prize sits at more than $1 billion.

Don't count on making a deposit for anywhere close to $1.6 billion if you win the Tuesday night drawing. After federal taxes and state deductions, which vary across the country, winners will generally end up with around half that amount to pay for their yacht shopping. The Powerball record jackpot was $1.586 billion, split between three winning tickets.

As more tickets sell, chances grow that at least one buyer will pick all six winning numbers.

"We tell them how to play it", she said.
