No winners for $454 million Mega Millions jackpot, officials say

The jackpot for Tuesday's Mega Millions drawing grew to $454 million, making it the 7th largest prize in U.S. history.

There were no winners for the Mega Millions jackpot estimated at $454 million on Tuesday, according to lottery officials.

Virginia Lottery spokesperson and media contact for Mega Millions John Haggerty confirmed there were no winners to ABC News.

Now, the jackpot was expected to jump to an estimated $508 million. That drawing will take place on Friday.

Tuesday's jackpot was the 7th largest in U.S. history and the largest since a $429.6 million Powerball prize was won by a New Jersey family on May 7.

The jackpot has now rolled over 34 times without a winner. The previous record was 22 rolls.
