Mega Millions recently changed its rules in October 2017, making the odds of winning the big jackpot lower (they used to be 1 in 258.9 million.) On October 28, 2017, Mega Millions increased the cost of buying a ticket from $1 to $2.

A single lottery ticket sold in the USA state of New Jersey has won Friday's Mega Millions jackpot of more than half a billion US dollars.

The jackpot has now reached $521 million, the fourth-largest in the lottery's history.

Friday's jackpot had been growing since it was last won on January 5, 2018 at $451 million. Five balls are drawn from a set of balls numbered 1 through 70; the Mega ball is drawn from a set of balls numbered 1 through 25.

The lucky ticket was sold to a player in New Jersey.

Riverdale is in northeastern New Jersey, about 30 miles outside of New York City.

If the prize is worth $599.50 or less, the ticket holder can receive their winnings in cash at any New Jersey Lottery Retailer.

The drawing was the 24th since the last time a ticket with all six numbers was sold.

Mega Millions is played in 44 US states including Washington, DC and the US Virgin Islands.

If no winning ticket has been sold, the jackpot will once more roll over into next week, at that point likely becoming the third-largest jackpot ever.

The jackpot will now reset to a starting value of $40 million.
