If you don't have luck with the Mega millions, maybe you'll have better luck on Wednesday!

If you want all the Mega Millions money up front, the payout on $654 million is a paltry $372 million. There hasn't been a Mega Millions jackpot victor since it reached $543 million in July.

Did someone say $1 billion in jackpots?

The Mega Millions jackpot is now $654 million, just $2 million short of the lottery's record. Any player who matches all numbers Wednesday night will win $9.6 million ($5.53 million cash option).

Mega Millions is not the only game in town.

Still, even the combined total wouldn't break the record USA lottery prize. The $345 million jackpot is the game's largest since the March 17 drawing, when a $456.7 million jackpot was won on a ticket sold in Pennsylvania.

The grand prize for Tuesday night's drawing has grown so enormous because no one has won the jackpot since July 24.

Roland Reyes claimed the prize on behalf of his group, saying they made a decision to play on a whim when they saw how large the jackpot had become.

The winning numbers for the Oct drawing were 27-28-32-41-69 and Mega Ball 12.

Mega Millions is played in 44 states, Washington D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
