Mega Millions: Winning numbers for the $1 billion drawing are in

NEW YORK (WABC) -- The already-massive jackpot for Friday's Mega Millions jackpot has grew even more, to an estimated $1 billion.

The jackpot soared after no one won Tuesday night's $865 million drawing.

Friday night's winning numbers are: 42, 26, 60, 50, 4 and a Megaball of 24.

Meantime, a single Powerball ticket sold in Maryland matched all six numbers in the Wednesday night to win the fourth-largest jackpot in Powerball history. Three lucky tickets sold in New Jersey nabbed $1 million prizes.
