Once again, no one hit the big prize on the Mega Millions and the jackpot is now over half a billion dollars.

Whether you're an avid lottery player, you buy tickets just once in a while, or you NEVER play, it's hard not to notice when the jackpot grows as big as it is now. Remember back in January 2015 when the Powerball jackpot was over a billion dollars?! As someone who never buys lottery tickets, you bet I bought a few. It's hard to imagine what you would... and could do, with all that money.

Granted, this jackpot is for the Mega Millions and not the Powerball, and it's not over a billion dollars, but it's still up there. And it may even grow more before the drawing tomorrow (Tuesday night). According to the New York Lottery, Tuesday's jackpot for the Mega Millions is worth $654 million dollars!

No one won the grand prize on Friday, so (obviously) the amount has continued to grow. Last Friday's numbers were:

4, 24, 46, 61, 70, Mega Ball: 7

You still have time to purchase your tickets (if you choose to play along) for Tuesday's drawing. Tickets can be bought up until 10:45pm before the drawing at 11pm. BUT... If you really want to bet, I probably wouldn't wait until the last minute to get those tickets, but hey, that's just me.

Good luck!
