No winner in Mega Millions Friday

Friday night's Mega Millions drawing is worth $548 million to a single victor.

The $548 million prize in Friday's drawing refers to the annuity option, which is awarded in 30 payouts.

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. The potential payout on Saturday is the 24th-highest in the game's history.

The chance of matching all six numbers and winning the jackpot is one in 302.5 million.

Mega Millions' record haul was a $656 million jackpot shared by people in three states in 2012. A victor who opted for a cash payout would receive $309 million, minus taxes.

Four tickets matched all five white balls Tuesday to earn the second prize, and 37 matched four white balls and the Mega Ball for a third-place prize. The current Powerball jackpot has ballooned to $314 million.

The jackpot's been growing since it was last won July 24.
