No one had all the numbers in Tuesday night's Mega Millions lottery.

That means Friday's jackpot jumps to $290 million. It could go even higher.

Tuesday's numbers were: 01-04-06-11-14, Mega Ball: 30

It's been nearly two months now since someone has won the Mega Millions multi-state lottery jackpot.

The jackpot for Tuesday night's drawing was $241 million.

The closest anyone in Illinois came to winning the grand prize was the one player who bought their ticket at J & K Liquors, 1930 W. Chase in the West Rogers Park neighborhood. That player matched the first five numbers and will receive $250,000.

Another 16 Illinois players matched four of five numbers and the Mega Ball, and they will each collect $10,000.
