Huge Mega Millions Jackpot For Tonight’s Drawing
UNDATED — Lottery players in states that play Mega Millions are getting the chance to vie for the seventh-largest lottery prize in U.S. history.
The Mega Millions jackpot for tonight’s (Tuesday) drawing is up to $330 million thanks to brisk sales pushing the big prize higher. That works out to about $208 million if taken as a lump sum.
The game is similar to Powerball – players try to win by matching five regular numbers plus the “Mega ball.” Tickets cost $1.
The game is available in 41 states — including Minnesota — and the District of Columbia.
