The $1.6 billion estimated jackpot would be the largest prize in US history.

Powerball officials reported that there were no winners and estimated that Wednesday's drawing would be worth $620 million. According to the N.C. Education Lottery, which offers Mega Millions tickets, a single victor in Friday's drawing would have received $565.6 million if they took the cash option.

The Mega Millions lottery in the U.S. has reached an epic $1.6 billion after no one won the 41 billion prize on Friday night.

On Tuesday, that would mean a total of almost $905 million - before taxes, according to the Mega Millions website.

Then on Saturday, no winners were selected in the Powerball drawing.

Each Powerball ticket is $2. The chance of matching all six numbers and taking home the grand prize is one in 302.5 million.

While nobody won Saturday night's jackpot, there are a few lucky winners who matched all numbers except the Powerball.

For an extra $1 you can get a "Power Play" ticket in which you can increase the amount of the smaller prizes, but not the grand prize.

The Mega Millions' odds were lowered a year ago to 1-in-303 million from 1-in-259 million, to generate larger prizes.
