A giant Mega Millions lottery jackpot ballooned to $1.02 billion after no one matched all six numbers Tuesday night and won the top prize

The new estimated jackpot will be the nation's fourth-largest lottery prize

The jackpot has grown so large because no one has matched the game's six selected numbers since April 15

Tuesday's numbers were: 07-29-60-63-66, Mega Ball: 15

The $1.02 billion prize is for winners who choose the annuity option, paid annually over 30 years

 Most winners opt for the cash option, which for the next drawing Friday night is an estimated $602.5 million

The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 302.5 million

Mega Millions is played in 45 states as well as Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands

The game is coordinated by state lotteries
