DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — One of the largest jackpots in U.S. history is growing larger. There was no winner of Friday's drawing for the Mega Millions $750 million jackpot. It would have been the fifth-largest jackpot ever drawn. Now, the next top prize is estimated to grow to $850 million. That would be the third-largest of all time. The drawing is on Tuesday. Lottery players still have a chance to win big this weekend. The Powerball jackpot is up to $640 million for the drawing on Saturday. No one has won either game's top prize in months, and it's been nearly two years since a lottery jackpot has grown so large.
