Powerball jackpot grows to $345M after no one wins Saturday prize

No ticket matched the six winning numbers in Friday's Mega Millions drawing, pushing the jackpot up from $548 million to a whopping $654 million.

The Mega Millions jackpot for Tuesday's drawing stands at an estimated $654 million, with a cash option of $372.6 million. And there's even more fun with $862 million in combined jackpots for Mega Millions and Powerball.

The other multi-state lottery game, the Powerball, also has a jackpot with a sizable sum. That was the biggest prize ever won with a single ticket in the Mega Millions game, and the jackpot has been growing ever since.
