  • No Winning Mega Millions ticket jackpot now $654 million

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

The grand prize increased to the third-largest jackpot in the lottery's history, after no tickets matched all the numbers in the Tuesday drawing. The jackpot has been growing since July 24, and the next drawing is set for Tuesday.

If one were to match all five numbers and the mega number, which has the odds of 1 in 302 million, they would get to choose between a 30-year annuity or a cash payout.

There was a $3 million winning ticket sold in Arkansas.

October is beginning to look a lot like Christmas for gamblers, and one Chicago newsstand is playing Santa, handing out 548 free lottery tickets in the Loop Friday ahead of a record-setting prize drawing.
