Tuesday night’s jackpot for the Mega Millions drawing is up to $830 million and growing, driven by a flurry of sales across the nation.
The lump sum value of the jackpot is an estimated $487.9 million. If a lucky player wins tonight, it’ll be the third largest Mega Millions jackpot prize, and the fourth largest jackpot ever since the inception of Mega Millions and Powerball.
Meanwhile, Tuesday’s Mississippi Match 5 estimated jackpot is worth $336,000 while Wednesday’s Powerball jackpot rolled to $145 million.
Even if they don’t win the top prize, players participating in the Mega Millions game have the option to increase their winnings in second-tier prizes by adding the Megaplier to their purchase. For $1 more per play, players can increase their non-jackpot winnings by two, three, four, or even five times.
