Mega Millions Jackpot Expected To Climb to More Than $650 Million

Mega Millions Jackpot Expected To Climb to More Than $650 Million

Today's drawing for the Mega Millions jackpot is estimated to be over half a billion dollars and will be the third-largest jackpot in Mega Millions history.

The estimated $654 million total is the second-highest in the game's history. The jackpot has been growing since July 24, and the next drawing is set for Tuesday.

The jackpot has grown since July, the last time a winning ticket was sold.

For example, matching five white balls without the Mega Ball pays $1 million. Not bad for a couple of $2 tickets.

If you're looking for a tiny hint: the numbers 17 and 12 have been drawn twice as Mega Balls since August 31.

The $470 million prize came with a $265.3 million cash payout option, according to Mega Millions.

The biggest prize won on a single ticket was for $543 million. The most recent Mega Ball was 18 on Tuesday night. Maybe you'll want to get in line at this South Land Park store before Friday night for one of the largest payouts in the game's history.

Jackpot winners have a choice to make: cash or annuity.

Meanwhile, Powerball, which will be drawn on Saturday, has climbed to $314 million.

To play: Select five balls 1-69 and a Powerball 1-26.
