(Reuters) - Mega Millions rule changes aimed at creating bigger and faster-growing jackpots boosted the top prize for Friday's draw to an estimated $230 million, the lottery said.

If the winner chooses to take a cash prize instead of an annuity, it would amount to $125 million, according to the Mega Millions website. www.megamillions.com

The rule changes went into effect on October 22 and since no one matched all the numbers drawn on Tuesday, the November 29 jackpot is still growing.

The largest jackpot in history stands at $656 million and was won in the Mega Millions lottery in March 2012. The prize was split among winners in Maryland, Kansas and Illinois.
