The next drawing will be the Mega Millions on Friday.

The Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots continue to soar after no winners in recent weeks, and the two combined are now worth over $1.3 billion.

No one hit Wednesday's Powerball jackpot worth an estimated $345 million.

The winning numbers were 3, 64, 69, 68, and 57, and the Powerball was 15.

The jackpot for Saturday's Powerball drawing has now grown to $430 million with an estimated cash value of $248 million.

Meanwhile, no one hit the jackpot on Tuesday night in Mega Millions, so the drawing will be worth at least $900 million on Friday -- the game's largest jackpot ever.

The numbers drawn on Tuesday were 69, 45, 61, 3, and 49, and the Mega Ball was 9.

That drawing was worth $667 million, the third biggest lottery jackpot in U.S. history.

The previous Mega Millions record was $656 million, shared by winners in three states in 2012. The estimated cash value of Friday's drawing is now $513.4 million before taxes.

There were eight $1 million winners across the country in Pennsylvania, California, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, New Jersey, and New York. The ninth winner took home a $5 million prize in Texas.

The jackpot has grown so big because the last Mega Millions winner was drawn on July 24, when a California office pool of 11 coworkers shared $543 million -- the largest prize ever won on a single ticket in the game.

The biggest all-time lottery jackpot was a $1.6 billion Powerball prize in 2016.
Mega Millions jackpots start out at $40 million and roll over if there is no jackpot winner. Overall odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 302,575,350. Tickets are sold in 44 states plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
