FORDS - No one picked the six correct numbers in last night's multi-state Mega Millions lottery game, sending the jackpot to a record-breaking $500 million for the Friday drawing.

Last night's lottery jackpot was $363 million, fed by weeks of drawings without a top winner. The previous top jackpot in the Mega Millions game was $390 million in 2007, split by two winners in New Jersey and Georgia.

In last night's game, 47 players came very close, matching 5 of the 6 winning numbers. Each of those tickets is worth at least $250,000.

The winning numbers last night were: 9, 19, 34, 44 and 51. The Mega Ball was 24.

What are the hot numbers for Mega Milllions?
