Mega Millions prize up to $654M, 4th largest in U.S. history

Some lucky Powerball players won in Mt. Juliet and Memphis, totaling $150,000 and $50,000 respectively from last night's drawing.

The next Mega Millions drawing, scheduled for Tuesday, will be worth an estimated $654 million, officials said.

Unfortunately, even as the big prize for Tuesday night's drawing increases to the fourth-largest in USA history, the odds of matching all six numbers and winning the game don't improve.

That amount makes the latest jackpot the second-largest prize in Mega Millions history, coming in just behind 2012's record-breaking $656 million jackpot.

That's when the next Powerball drawing is.

Since there was no overall victor in Saturday's Powerball drawing, the jackpot has risen to $345 million.
