No jackpot victor was drawn in Friday's drawing for Mega Millions, which means the jackpot for that game has grown to an estimated $654 million for the Tuesday drawing. It's only $2 million less than the March 2012 record of $656 million.

More than 73,000 Mega Millions tickets won smaller prizes in Virginia from Friday's drawing, including a $10,000 victor that was bought in Manassas.

They may also set a record (or come close) for earnings on a single Powerball or Mega Millions ticket.

It's the second biggest Mega Millions drawing ever, and the third biggest lottery jackpot in US history. No one won Saturday night's jackpot; the winning numbers were 11-14-32-43-65 and a Powerball of 15. "With a little luck, we may still break that record". Mega Millions drawing days are Tuesdays and Fridays, with the next Mega Millions drawing on Tuesday, October 16. One lucky victor, Ashley Eggen of Elizabethtown, Ky., took in $1 million during Friday's drawing for matching the five-ball numbers drawn, according to NBC.
