And if you don't get lucky Friday night, there's still the Powerball drawing on Saturday.

The Mega Millions jackpot climbs to $654 million after no one won the $548 million in Friday's drawing.

The winning numbers for Saturday night were 11, 14, 32, 43 and 65, with a Powerball number of 15, according to the official Powerball website.

The grand prize increased to the third-largest jackpot in the lottery's history, after no tickets matched all the numbers in the Tuesday drawing.

The Kentucky Lottery is giving away hundreds of Mega Millions tickets ahead of Friday's big drawing.
