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

The winning numbers were 4-24-46-61-70 and a Mega Ball of 7.

The $548 million prize in Friday's drawing refers to the annuity option, which is awarded in 30 payouts.

Tuesday's drawing could eclipse the largest ever Mega Millions jackpot, a $656 million prize from 2012, according to Mega Millions.

The jackpot is the third-largest in the game's history and the odds of winning are 302,000,000 to one.

The Mega Millions jackpot is approaching $470 million.

The jackpot has grown since July, the last time a winning ticket was sold.
