Mega Millions jackpot grows to $449 million
The Mega Millions jackpot has grown to $449 million, making it the seventh largest jackpot in U.S. history.
No one matched all five numbers and the mega ball from last Friday’s drawing, which stood as the 10th largest lottery prize.
Tonight’s drawing remains the third largest Mega Millions jackpot in the game’s history. However, it’s still less than a third of the all-time record jackpot of $1.6 billion for the powerball earlier this year.
The winner of the jackpot can take a lump sum of $313 million or an initial payment and then 29 annual payments, according to the Mega Millions website.
What are your odds of winning the jackpot in Mega Millions? One in nearly 259 million.
The drawing will take place at 10 p.m. Central Time.
