The Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots combined are just short of $1 billion ahead of this week's lottery drawings.

Mega Millions lottery tickets rest on a counter at a Pilot travel center near Burlington, N.C., in 2016.

- The fourth-largest lottery prize in US history will be on the line as numbers are drawn for the Mega Millions game's $654 million jackpot. The Mega Millions jackpot hasn't been hit since July 24 in California.

The winning numbers were 11, 14, 32, 43, and 65 with a Powerball of 15.

Both drawings are live on CW20.

After 1st postseason cycle, Brock Holt back on Boston bench
Holt, a left-handed batter, had four hits and five RBIs in Boston's 16-1 rout on Monday night, his first game of the postseason. The latest was a five-out cameo in Game 2 against the Yankees in which he gave up homers to Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez .

No ticket matched the six winning numbers in Friday's Mega Millions drawing, pushing the jackpot up from $548 million to a whopping $654 million.

IN leads the nation in Powerball jackpot wins with 39.

The $654 million would be the payout if a victor selects for the annuity option, paid out over 29 years.

The cash option on the Mega Millions prize is an estimated $372.6 million, while the cash option on the Powerball prize is an estimated $199 million. "It only takes one ticket to win". If those tickets were purchased with the Megaplier option, the prizes would be multiplied to $30,000.

That's when the next Powerball drawing is.
