The numbers for the Mega Millions second-highest jackpot were drawn Friday night.
The winning numbers were: 27-26-24-19-70-12.
The jackpot's rise is an indication of players' excitement, according to the South Carolina Education Lottery. Nationwide, ticket sales are estimated to make $63 million Friday.
