No winning lottery ticket was sold for the Mega Millions drawing Friday night, meaning the jackpot climbs to $654 million.

The largest jackpot in Mega Millions history was won in March 2012.

The drawing on Tuesday would have granted the victor the sixth-largest Mega Millions jackpot in history. No one won Friday night's drawing, which was the third-largest in Mega Millions' history. It typically takes about two hours from the time of the drawing to process all the tickets and find out if someone won.

The jackpot victor will need to match numbers on all five white balls and the Mega Ball.

If you're looking for a tiny hint: the numbers 17 and 12 have been drawn twice as Mega Balls since August 31. Not bad for a couple of $2 tickets. There were 37 tickets that matched four white balls plus the Mega Ball on Tuesday. It was the 22nd consecutive drawing that no one matched all six numbers.
