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.

The winning numbers for the Oct drawing were 27-28-32-41-69 and Mega Ball 12.

The last time anyone won the jackpot was July 24, when a group from California claimed a $543 million prize. That's the fourth largest lottery prize in US history. The cash option, which is favored by almost all winners, is $372 million.
