Mega Millions $548 million jackpot numbers revealed

Saturday's Powerball drawing following a Mega Millions drawing on Friday night, for which there were also no winners.

The estimated $654 million total is the second-highest in the game's history.

A group of 11 office workers in San Jose, CA, who made a "spur of the moment" decision to pool together, beat the odds and won July's jackpot of $543 million.

For example, matching five white balls without the Mega Ball pays $1 million. Those wanting to play can purchase $1 tickets until 10:45 p.m.

The Kentucky Lottery is giving away hundreds of Mega Millions tickets ahead of Friday's big drawing.

Three winning tickets in Illinois, Kansas, and Maryland shared the largest Mega Millions jackpot ever, which grew to $648 million in March 2012. The most recent Mega Ball was 18 on Tuesday night. A victor who opted for a cash payout would receive $309 million, minus taxes.

Mega Millions announced Friday night that the winning numbers are 4, 24, 46, 61, 70 and the Mega Ball 7.

Mega Millions is played in 44 states as well as Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Saturday night's drawing will be worth $314 million.
