Lottery officials said the jackpot for Friday's Mega Millions drawing has amassed $353 million.

Officials said the jackpot is the game's fifth largest ever.

Even if South Carolina players don't win the jackpot, lottery officials said they will often win lesser prizes. Officials said more than 50,000 South Carolina players won anywhere from $1 to $20,000 in Tuesday's drawing.

The odds of winning the jackpot are about 1 in 259 million.

The Mega Millions drawing will be held Friday on FOX Carolina at 11 p.m. Tickets must be purchased by 10 p.m.
