Mega Millions Jackpot Soars to Over $1 Billion for Tuesday's Drawing

(CTN News) – The Mega Millions Jackpot has crossed a billion dollars!

Since there were no winners on Friday, the jackpot will climb to an estimated $1.1 billion, with a cash option of $525.8 million for Tuesday’s drawing.

It’ll be the fifth biggest Mega Millions Jackpot and the eighth biggest U.S. lottery jackpot ever.

“Lottery fever continues to spread throughout the country,” said Gretchen Corbin, lead director of the Mega Millions Consortium.

We love our players and retailers and want everyone to play responsibly. “Large jackpots provide entertainment and winnings for our players nationwide, and they fund our beneficiary programs.”

Two California tickets sold at the same location split the $394 million Mega Millions jackpot on Dec. 8.

Did anyone win big in Friday’s drawing?

Despite not hitting the jackpot, six lottery players won million-dollar prizes.

One ticket in Virginia had the Megaplier up to $3 million. Tickets sold in Florida, Illinois, Nebraska and Texas won $1 million each; a California ticket won $736,435 (non-jackpot prizes are based on actual sales).
