The winning numbers have been drawn in the Mega Millions lottery game, with the jackpot at an estimated $353 million.
The numbers drawn Friday night were 7-20-40-54-69, with a Mega Ball of 12.
The Mega Millions had not yet announced if anyone won what would be the fifth-largest jackpot in its history.
The jackpot has been rolling since January 3.
The biggest lottery prize in the U.S. was a $656 million dollar Mega Millions jackpot in 2012.
Mega Millions changed its rules in October to help increase jackpots by lowering the odds of winning the top prize. That means the chances of winning the jackpot are now about 1 in 259 million. It used to be about 1 in 176 million.
