That's what many people woke up saying after finding out nobody hit the $363 million jackpot in Tuesday night's Mega Millions drawing.
The top prize now stands at $476 million for the Friday, March 30, drawing. Yes: nearly halfway to a billion dollars.
In Tuesday's drawing, 47 players matched five of six winning numbers, netting at least $250,000 a piece.
The numbers were: 9, 19, 34, 44 and 51 with a Mega Ball of 24.
Friday's jackpot is the largest ever for Mega Millions, which is played in more than 40 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The Mega Millions website states the chance of matching all five balls and the Mega Ball is one in 175,711,536.
