If you're looking to strike it rich, you still have a shot if you buy a ticket for the Mega Millions drawing Friday night.

No one matched all six numbers in Tuesday's drawing, so the jackpot for Friday climbed to $290 million, according to the Maryland Lottery.

Tuesday night's winning numbers were 1, 4, 6, 11 and 14, and the Mega Ball was 30. One person from Maryland won $250,000 by matching the first five numbers without the Mega Ball, lottery officials said.

The Mega Millions top prize has been on the rise since a Georgia woman won a $72 million jackpot in late January.
