A lucky player could soon overcome remarkably bad odds to win the ninth-largest lottery jackpot in US history.

There was no victor for Mega Millions' Friday jackpot, pushing Tuesday's jackpot to $654 million.

No tickets matched all five numbers and the mega number for Tuesday's jackpot worth $470 million.

It's not yet known whether anyone had bought a winning ticket.

The next drawing will be Tuesday.

While heavy rain is expected to continue into the Saturday, the wind is now believed to ease off by Friday evening. From midnight on Saturday, weather experts have warned of yet more "heavy and persistent" rainfall across the city.

The Mega Millions winning numbers will be drawn Friday night and Powerball's winning numbers will be drawn on Saturday.

The last victor to take home a Mega Millions jackpot above $500 million was a group of 11 coworkers on a ticket sold in California in July.

It costs $2 to play the game, but the odds of instant wealth aren't good.

The Powerball pot climbed after no winners in Wednesday's draw.

The top prize reached $548 million, with a one-time cash option of $309 million. You can play Mega Millions in 46 localities: 44 states plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
