There hasn't been a Mega Millions jackpot victor since it reached $543 million in July.

Tuesday night's Mega Millions jackpot has reached $654 million with a cash option of about $372 million.

The jackpot has been growing since July, and this is now the second largest jackpot in the history of the lottery game. No one won Saturday night's jackpot; the winning numbers were 11-14-32-43-65 and a Powerball of 15.

If someone wakes up Wednesday a multi-millionaire, they are encouraged to do a few things before cashing in the ticket.




"With a little luck, we may still break that record by Tuesday", said Medenica, who is also the director of Maryland Lottery and Gaming. Mega Millions drawing days are Tuesdays and Fridays, with the next Mega Millions drawing on Tuesday, October 16. The amount you will win is likely $0, because the odds of winning either jackpot are one in several hundred million.

Tickets for both games are $2. If those tickets were purchased with the Megaplier option, the prizes would be multiplied to $30,000.

The next drawing will be October 17 with the prize of $345 million.
