This week's Powerball has an nearly equally impressive top prize, the game's fourth-largest jackpot in history, now at $345 million.

The Mega Millions jackpot has reached more than half a billion dollars!

The bloated payouts are a function of a jackpot drought. That was the biggest prize ever won with a single ticket in the Mega Millions game, and the jackpot has been growing ever since. No one won Saturday night's jackpot; the winning numbers were 11-14-32-43-65 and a Powerball of 15.

"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 is not the only game in town. It's $345 million, or $199 million in cash.

Huawei Mate 20 launch event today, know details and watch livestream
What are your thoughts on the Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro? The smaller Mate 20 has a "teardrop" style cutout. Other than that, the Huawei Mate 20 features a 4,000mAh battery, a little less than the Mate 20 Pro's 4,200mAh.

The odds of winning Tuesday's drawing is more than 302 million to one. So don't quit your day job just yet. It's only $2 million less than the March 2012 record of $656 million.

And Friday's Mega Millions wasn't a complete bust. If those tickets were purchased with the Megaplier option, the prizes would be multiplied to $30,000.

The estimated $654 million jackpot refers to the annuity option, paid out over 29 years.

Some lucky Powerball players won in Mt. Juliet and Memphis, totaling $150,000 and $50,000 respectively from last night's drawing.
