The Mega Millions jackpot grew to an estimated $735 million after no ticket matched the winning numbers during Friday night’s drawing.

The winning numbers drawn Friday night were 19, 20, 22, 47 and 58 with a Mega ball of 1. The Megaplier was 3X.

Nobody claimed the $687 million grand prize Friday night, but two players – one in Georgia and one in Texas – matched all five white balls to win the game’s second-tier prize of $1 million.
