Mega Millions numbers: Did you win Friday’s $157 million lottery jackpot?

The Mega Millions lottery has a new jackpot that’s ... well, mega-big.

Here are the winning numbers in Friday’s drawing:

14-24-31-42-48; Mega Ball: 13; Megaplier: 3X

The estimated jackpot for the drawing is $157 million. The cash option is about $94 million. If no one wins, the Mega Millions jackpot will get bigger for the next drawing.

The last time someone won the jackpot was Jan. 1 when a ticket sold in New York captured the $425 million grand prize.

According to the game’s official website, the odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 302,575,350.

Players pick six numbers from two separate pools of numbers -- five different numbers from 1 to 70 and one number from 1 to 25 -- or select Easy Pick. A player wins the jackpot by matching all six winning numbers in a drawing.

Jackpot winners choose whether to receive 30 annual payments, each five percent higher than the last, or a lump-sum payment.

Mega Millions drawings are Tuesdays and Fridays and are offered in 44 states, Washington D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Tickets cost $2 each.
