The winning Mega Millions numbers are white balls 8-19-20-55-73 and yellow ball 5.

The consortium of lottery organizations that runs Mega Millions says if a ticket matches all five white balls and the yellow ball Friday night, it would win a jackpot of an estimated $540 million.

An estimated $1 billion in tickets have been sold since the last jackpot-winning ticket was drawn in early March. This is the longest Mega Millions run without a winner.

Tickets are sold in 43 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
