The estimated jackpot for that drawing would be the fourth largest lottery prize in US history. The jackpot climbed $78 million after no one matched all six numbers Tuesday night.
The jackpot has grown since July, the last time a winning ticket was sold. Not bad for a couple of $2 tickets.
There were 37 tickets that matched four white balls plus the Mega Ball on Tuesday.
Friday's winning numbers numbers were 4-24-46-61-70 and a Mega Ball of 7.
Saturday's jackpot has a cash option of $179.4 million.
The $470 million prize came with a $265.3 million cash payout option, according to Mega Millions.
Mass Lottery spokesman Christian Teja said this weekend's drawings will total over $865 million, with tomorrow's Powerball jackpot estimated at $314 million.
"When a (Powerball) jackpot or Mega Millions goes over $500 million, that's when you really start seeing an uptick in sales of those games", Teja said.
To play: Select five balls 1-69 and a Powerball 1-26.
