No Winning Mega Millions ticket, jackpot now $654 million

LUCKY TICKET? Kenny Mcardle of Dorchester shows off the Mega Millions tickets he purchased at the 7 Eleven for today’s drawing. Staff

Numbers have been drawn for a lottery jackpot that would be the ninth-largest lottery in US history. Pacific time, it's unsurprising that Lichine's had a long line Wednesday evening - more than 60 people stopped by in about an hour - and the store expects even more to file in for a $2 ticket before sales end at 7 p.m. Friday.

An in-state Megabucks Doubler drawing will also take place tomorrow for an estimated $3.3 million in winnings.

Lottery players, now's your chance. He said that if he won, he would spend the money paying off debts, putting his kids to school and going on vacation.

"When a (Powerball) jackpot or Mega Millions goes over $500 million, that's when you really start seeing an uptick in sales of those games", Teja said.

"It's a chance. You can't win unless you play", said Jamiu Kolawole after he received his free ticket.

Other jackpots won this year include $451 million in January, $533 million in March, and $142 million in May.

The jackpot's been growing since it was last won July 24. It was the 22nd consecutive drawing that left the jackpot untouched.

The Mega Millions winning numbers will be drawn Friday night and Powerball's winning numbers will be drawn on Saturday. Tickets are sold at retail outlets or online, and cut-off 59 minutes before the drawing.

Tuesday's drawing could eclipse the largest ever Mega Millions jackpot, a $656 million prize from 2012, according to Mega Millions.
