Mega Millions top prize grows to $548 million

Posted: Updated:

The third largest jackpot in Mega Millions history is up for grabs on Friday after Tuesday night's drawing did not come up with any winners of the game's biggest prize.

Friday's estimated prize is $548 million, or $309.2 million cash.

The jackpot has been growing since it was last won on July 24, and for the 22nd consecutive drawing, there were no tickets matching all six numbers drawn.

The winning numbers for October 9 are the white balls 20, 22, 39, 54 and 60, plus the gold Mega Ball 18.

The jackpot is closing in on the record prize for the game, $656 million shared by winners in Illinois, Kansas, and Maryland on March 30, 2012.

Just behind that was a $648 million pot won in California and Georgia on December 17, 2013.

You can watch Friday's drawing on 21 News at 11.
