Lottery players, now's your chance. It would also be the fourth-largest winning jackpot in US history, with two Powerball drawings outranking the highest Mega Millions totals.

The lump sum option for that jackpot pays $179.4 million.

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.

One person in Arkansas did win $3 million Friday by matching all five of the white balls. He said he'd spend winnings on investments and travel, particularly to London, Dubai and India.

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

The lottery is also giving away free t-shirts and other items. The largest, just $2 million more, was drawn in March 2012. It was the 22nd consecutive drawing that left the jackpot untouched. Tickets are sold at retail outlets or online, and cut-off 59 minutes before the drawing.

The $314 million ranks as the 24th-highest in the game's history and the 41st-highest combined jackpot ever i the U.S.
