No one won the latest Mega Millions drawing, meaning the jackpot climbs to a staggering $1.6 billion.

Lines were forming Friday morning at gas stations and 7-11s across the 44 states, the federal capital Washington and the U.S. Virgin Islands where the lottery is held, with the draw to take place at 11:00 p.m. local time (0300 GMT).

At some point someone is going to win the lottery, aren't they?

The numbers were drawn for what was a $470 million dollar Powerball jackpot Saturday. If there is a victor, they will get the 13th largest payout in history.
