If you bought tickets for Tuesday night's Mega Millions lottery game, worth an estimated $257 million, there's bad news and good news.

The bad news is that no one won the jackpot (but you still want to check your tickets for lesser prizes).

The good news is that Friday night's drawing for the multi-state game now involves a jackpot approaching $300 million — $291 million, to be exact, according to Maryland Lottery spokeswoman Erica Palmisano.

Should a winner choose the cash option, the payout would be $157.2 million, before taxes.

Mega Millions drawings take place Tuesdays and Fridays.
