Mega Millions jackpot jumps to $636M; drawing tonight

A one dollar investment can turn into a $636 million reward if you buy the lucky “Mega Millions” lottery ticket.

The drawing will take place on Tuesday at 10 p.m.

If there’s a lone winner, then the lump sum payout is about $340 million.

The $636 million jackpot is the second largest in U.S. history. The record was $656 million in March 2012.

People in the Chicago area are rushing to buy tickets, and that could send the jackpot even higher.

“I’m a lucky person. I’m gonna win,” said one player.

We spoke with Napleton’s Aston Martin of Chicago, and we learned a winner could buy 973 of the new, Aston Martin Vanquishes, which cost about $325,000, if they want to.
