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

The Mega Millions jackpot has reached $654 million, the second largest in Mega Millions history.

No one has won the Mega Millions jackpot since July 24, when a San Jose office pool of 11-co-workers matched all six numbers to split a $543 million prize.

The last time Mega Millions was this big, it was only worth $2 million more. Mega Millions drawing days are Tuesdays and Fridays, with the next Mega Millions drawing on Tuesday, October 16. They're stuck at a miserable one in 302.5 million.

At $667 million, someone holding a lone winning ticket would have the option of taking a cash payout of $380 million, according to the game's website. If those tickets were purchased with the Megaplier option, the prizes would be multiplied to $30,000.

Three other Mega Millions jackpots have been won this year: $451 million on January 5 (Florida), $533 million on March 30 (New Jersey) and $142 million on May 4 (Ohio). That historic drawing, back in March 2012, for $656 million was shared between ticket holders in Illinois, Kansas, and Maryland. "Jackpot fever is definitely sweeping the country!"
