Mega Millions Winning Numbers Announced For $548 Million Jackpot

Nobody won Friday’s Mega Millions jackpot grand prize rises to $654 million

Nobody won Friday’s Mega Millions jackpot grand prize rises to $654 million

The Mega Millions jackpot climbs to $654 million after no one won the $548 million in Friday's drawing.

Lottery officials revealed Saturday that no one had a ticket with the winning numbers - 4, 24, 46, 61, 70 and Mega Ball 7.

In 2012, three winning tickets were sold, so the jackpot was split three ways in Kansas, Illinois, and Maryland.

Mega Millions appears to be the big draw lately.

Since an 11-member office pool in Santa Clara County, California, hit a $543 million jackpot on July 24, there have been no winners over 22 drawings.

The grand prize increased to the third-largest jackpot in the lottery's history, after no tickets matched all the numbers in the Tuesday drawing. With the odds of hitting the jackpot at one in 302.6 million, it is no wonder. In July when the jackpot was $522 million, we found out faster than usual that someone won, within about an hour.

If you're looking for a tiny hint: the numbers 17 and 12 have been drawn twice as Mega Balls since August 31. The immediate cash value of the prize, which winners can opt to take, is $309 million. But if you only match two white balls and don't match the yellow ball, you won't win anything.

And there's always a chance a victor might stay anonymous, thanks to a recent Powerball jackpot victor in New Hampshire.

The second-largest jackpot was $648 million.

Mega Millions is available in 44 states, plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The winning ticket for the historic $1.58 billion Powerball jackpot in January 2016 was drawn in Florida.
