  • No winner in Mega Millions Friday

No winning lottery ticket was sold for the Mega Millions drawing Friday night, meaning the massive jackpot now soars to $654 million.

The $314 million ranks as the 24th-highest in the game's history and the 41st-highest combined jackpot ever i the U.S. The jackpot climbed $78 million after no one matched all six numbers Tuesday night.

Unidentified players in Minnesota and Nebraska, however, won "Match 5" prizes, officials said.

The $548 million jackpot Friday would have been the third-largest in Mega Millions history.

The Mega Millions prize has grown so large because no one has won the jackpot since July 24, when 11 co-workers from the San Francisco Bay Area joined an office pool and hit the winning numbers for a $543 million payoff.

Red Sox beat Yankees, advance to ALCS
Now we just moan indignantly about Hernandez and ponder what he might do in Game 4-when he will be the umpire behind home plate. Sanchez came through with a one-out double and then Torres hit a soft tapper down the third base line for an infield hit.

Mega Millions tickets cost $2 per play and there are a total of nine ways to win a prize, ranging from the jackpot down to $2.

For example, matching five white balls without the Mega Ball pays $1 million.

And if you don't get lucky Friday night, there's still the Powerball drawing on Saturday.

Jackpot winners have a choice to make: cash or annuity.

To play: Select five balls 1-69 and a Powerball 1-26.
