    The Mega Millions jackpot has risen to $363 million after no ticket matched all six numbers drawn Tuesday night. 

    The numbers are 6, 13, 21, 49, 50 plus the Mega Ball 10.

    The prize grew to $363 million since no winning tickets were selected last Friday night. The jackpot rolled again to an estimated $363 million ($244 million cash) -- the sixth largest jackpot in Mega Millions history -- for the next drawing on Friday, June 24.

    This is the biggest jackpot Mega Millions has offered since March 18, 2014, when two tickets in Florida and Maryland shared a $414 million prize. The Mega Millions lottery is played in 44 states, including Washington, D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Nevada, Utah, Mississippi, Alabama, Alaska and Hawaii are the only non-participating states.

    A McDonough, Georgia, Walmart is facing a backlash after an employee refused to make a "Blue Lives Matter" cake for a retiring police officer, and the story is going viral. The officer's daughter says it was a cake for the officer's retirement party after serving for 25 years. After a friend posted about the incident on Facebook, a manager called her to apologize and make the cake. Walmart's corporate communications department also issued an apology.

    Last week a lottery player in Rhode Island won the largest Mega Millions prize ever won in the state. The ticket included an optional Megaplier, which turned the $1 million win into a $5 million prize.

    The largest Mega Millions jackpot was won on March 30, 2012, when three tickets shared a $656 million prize. The largest single ticket jackpot was $326 million, which was won on Nov. 4, 2014.
