The Mega Millions jackpot continues to climb and is now at $548 million ahead of Friday night's drawing.

No one hit the five numbers and Mega Ball on Tuesday night, which means the jackpot still continues to climb.

The last Mega Millions jackpot that was won was $543 million on July 24 and was the third-largest in the game's history. A pool of 11 coworkers in California won that jackpot.

Mega Millions winning numbers: 04-24-46-61-70 with Mega Ball 07 for $548 million jackpot.
