The bigger jackpots get, the more they jump when no one wins. Last night, the Mega Millions jackpot rose by a whopping $73 million to its third largest prize ever: $325 million. The $325 million up for grabs on Friday is the total for 26 payouts over 25 years. Can't wait? The cash windfall is $206.4 million (minus no small fortune in taxes). The numbers no one completely matched last night were 3, 12, 19, 22 and 40, with a Mega Ball of 2.
