Mega Millions Hits $650 Million In Jackpot


The jackpot for Mega Millions has jumped to $654 million, with a cash option of $372.6 million, after no one won in Friday night’s drawing. Friday’s winning numbers numbers were 4-24-46-61-70 and a Mega Ball of 7.

The prize is $2 million shy of the all-time highest Mega Millions jackpot of $656 million. Mega Millions jackpots start at $40 million and roll over until the jackpot is won. The odds of winning the Mega Millions jackpot with a $2 ticket are 1-in-302.5 million.

Winners can accept the prize as an annuity to be paid out over nearly three decades, or they can choose to receive a lump-sum cash payment. The lump sum is the current value of the jackpot in cash — for Tuesday’s drawing, that figure is expected to be nearly $373 million.
