    North Texans hoped to get lucky and cash in on the massive Mega Millions drawing Friday night.

    The multi-state lottery jackpot stands at $333 million. That's the second largest jackpot in the history of the game.

    The estimated lump sum cash value is more than $210.4 million. If the winner chooses annual payments, that would be $12.8 million per year before taxes for the next 26 years.

    The numbers drawn Friday night were: 37,1,17,31,54, Megaball 31. It will likely be Saturday before it can be determined if any winning tickets were sold.

    You have a one in 175,711,536 chance of winning.

    If no one wins tonight, the jackpot rolls over to $430 million, that would be the largest in history.

    The largest jackpot to date was $390 million in 2007, shared between a New Jersey couple and a Georgia truck driver.

    The 12 states that participate in the Mega Millions are California, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Texas, Virginia and Washington.
