Last Friday's winning numbers were 4-24-46-61-70 and a Mega Ball of 7.

The jackpot has been climbing since July 24, when 11 people in California who took part in an office pool took home a $543 million prize. The cash option, which is favored by almost all winners, is $372 million.

Unfortunately, even as the big prize for Tuesday night's drawing rises to the fourth-largest in USA history, the odds of matching all six numbers and winning the game don't improve.
