Jan. 16 (UPI) -- The Mega Millions jackpot grew to an estimated $850 million after no one matched all six numbers in Friday's drawing.

The numbers drawn Friday night were 3, 11, 12, 38 and 43, with a Mega Ball of 15. If anyone had matched the numbers, they would have won $750 million -- the fourth-largest lottery payout in U.S. history.

The new $850 million prize would be the third-largest lottery payout in U.S. history and the second-largest Mega Millions prize. The Powerball drawing holds the world record for the largest payout at $1.59 billion in 2016, and the largest Mega Millions prize was $1.54 billion in 2018.

The next Mega Millions drawing will take place Tuesday, and the next Powerball drawing -- which includes an estimated $640 billion jackpot -- takes place Saturday.
