The Mega Millions jackpot continues to climb and is now at $470 million ahead of Tuesday night's drawing.

No one hit the five numbers and Mega Ball on Friday night, which means the jackpot still continues to climb. Those numbers were 27, 28, 32, 41 and 69, plus a Mega Ball of 12.

It's the sixth-largest jackpot in Mega Millions history and includes a cash payout of $265.3 million.

The last Mega Millions jackpot that was won was $543 million on July 24 and was the third-largest in the game's history. A pool of 11 coworkers in California won that jackpot.
