(RNN) - You've got two days to get your tickets for a chance at a jackpot that has now become one of the five richest in Mega Millions history.

The Mega Millions jackpot reached $421 million after Tuesday's drawing failed to produce a perfect ticket. The numbers were 14, 38, 51, 64, 70 and 9.

The next drawing will be 11 p.m. ET on Friday.

This is the second jackpot this year of more than $400 million. A 20-year-old Florida man won $451 million in January.

The highest jackpot in the promotion's history came in 2012, at $656 million. That however produced three winning tickets that split the winnings.

The greatest single-winner jackpot was $536 million, won by a family in Indiana in July 2016.

People can still win without a perfect ticket. Matching five numbers, but not the final "match" number produces a $1 million payout. Smaller amounts can also be won by matching fewer of the numbers.

Mega Millions is available in 44 states, plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Alaska, Hawaii, Nevada, Utah, Alabama and Mississippi do not participate.
