  • 548 million jackpot for Friday night Mega Millions drawing

The third-largest jackpot in Mega Millions history will be up for grabs on Friday.

Lottery players, now's your chance. It is also one of the top ten largest jackpots in USA history.

Unidentified players in Minnesota and Nebraska, however, won "Match 5" prizes, officials said. He said he'd spend winnings on investments and travel, particularly to London, Dubai and India. The chance of matching all six numbers and winning the jackpot is one in 302.5 million. Others said they'd also pay off debts and give to charity.

The Mega Millions numbers drawn Friday night were 4, 24, 46, 61, and 70, and the bonus number 7, according to the Mega Millions website.

The drawing on Tuesday would have granted the victor the sixth-largest Mega Millions jackpot in history. It was the 22nd consecutive drawing that left the jackpot untouched.

The estimated $548 million prize would be the largest jackpot in more than nine months. Tickets are sold at retail outlets or online, and cut-off 59 minutes before the drawing.

The $548 million jackpot refers to the annuity option, paid out over 29 years.

The odds of winning both games? Not bad for a couple of $2 tickets.
