WASHINGTON — If you forgot to buy a ticket for Friday’s Mega Millions drawing, there is good news: No one else won so you have another chance on Tuesday.

The new estimated jackpot is already up to $493 million, that would make it the fifth largest Mega Millions jackpot and more ticket sales could make it even bigger.

It is also the third jackpot of at least $400 million this year.

Friday night’s winning numbers were 1, 14, 30, 44 and 62, plus the gold Mega Ball 1.

While no one won the jackpot, two tickets did wind up matching the five white balls to win $1 million each.
