DES MOINES, Iowa — Strong weekend Mega Millions ticket sales easily could push Tuesday's jackpot above last year's record $656 million prize, a lottery official said.

No ticket matched the six numbers needed to win Friday's $425 million prize. It was raised Saturday to $550 million for Tuesday's drawing — the fourth largest in U.S. history.

As of Friday, players had bought enough tickets to cover roughly half of the 259 million possible number combinations, Otto said.
