A lucky player could soon overcome remarkably bad odds to win the ninth-largest lottery jackpot in USA history.

Mega Millions tickets cost $2 per play and there are a total of nine ways to win a prize, ranging from the jackpot down to $2.

Numbers will be drawn Friday night for a chance at the estimated $548 million Mega Millions prize.

No one has matched the numbers since July 24, when an office pool in Santa Clara, California won. A victor who opted for a cash payout would receive $309 million, minus taxes.

The largest Mega Millions jackpot topped out at $656 million in 2012, followed by $648 million a year later.
