The Mega Millions jackpot rose to an estimated $1.1 billion after no tickets matched the winning numbers in Friday night’s drawing.

The winning numbers drawn Friday night were 3, 8, 31, 35 and 44 with a Mega ball of 16. The Megaplier was 3X.

While nobody won the estimated $977 million jackpot Friday night, five players — in California, Florida, Illinois, Nebraska and Texas — matched all five white balls to win $1 million and one player in Virginia matched all five white balls and the Megaplier to win $3 million.
