BALTIMORE (WJZ)—Now might be a good time to buy your Mega Millions ticket.

With no one winning Wednesday night’s jackpot, Friday night’s potential winnings are up to $400 million.

That’s the fifth largest jackpot in Mega Millions history.

The estimated cash payout is $216 million.

Maryland has seen 10 Mega Millions jackpot winners. This year alone Maryland had 15 $1 million winners.

In October, an Anne Arundel County man had a $189 million winning ticket. He took the cash option, taking home $86 million after state and federal taxes.

Last year, three Baltimore County educators had one of three winning tickets for the record $656 million jackpot. Each took home almost $35 million after state and federal taxes.
