The Mega Millions jackpot has climbed to $654 million.
Nearly $1 billion in combined grand prize money could await lottery players with tickets for the Mega Millions and Powerball lottery games this week.
Tickets for both games are $2.
The Mega Millions lotto drawing is up to $521 million, March 30, 2018. Friday's numbers were 4, 24, 46, 61, 70 and Mega Ball 7.
Unfortunately, even as the big prize for Tuesday night's drawing increases to the fourth-largest in USA history, the odds of matching all six numbers and winning the game don't improve. There hasn't been a Mega Millions jackpot victor since it reached $543 million in July. Since the jackpot reset in July there have been 17.5 million winning tickets at all the prize levels, with 25 winners taking home prizes of $1 million or more. No one won Saturday night's jackpot; the winning numbers were 11-14-32-43-65 and a Powerball of 15.
