California Lottery says there were no winning tickets sold in California, but one ticket sold in Morgan Hill matched five out of the six numbers. California Lottery tweeted that it is still waiting on results from other states.

If no one wins Friday’s jackpot, the jackpot will rise to an estimated $1.6 billion for Tuesday’s drawing. That would tie for the largest U.S. lottery prize.

The $1 billion jackpot is currently the second-largest lottery prize in U.S. history.

The odds of winning are just one in 302.5 million.

The current jackpot is so large because no one has won the jackpot since July 24, when a group in California won $543 million.
