Record-breaking Mega Millions jackpot up for grabs


The Mega Millions drawing takes place at 8 p.m. Friday, while Powerball's draw is slated for 8 p.m. Wednesday.

Your chances of winning Tuesday's Mega Millions were a jaw-dropping 302,575,350 to 1, while the likelihood of taking home the Powerball jackpot is only slightly better at 292,201,388 to 1.

One "Match 5" victor was reported in Arkansas, according to the site.

Kansas Lottery players, like players everywhere, are talking about Mega Millions and making sure they have their tickets for the next drawing.

After almost three months without a victor, the Mega Millions lottery game has climbed to an estimated $654 million jackpot. It's the second-largest in Mega Millions history.

The Mega Millions drawing for Tuesday night has become the largest in game history at $667 million.

Mega Millions is played in 44 states as well as Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands. You only have a one-in-259 million chance of winning.

After going without a victor since July 24, the Mega Millions game has now reached an all-time high at $667 million. "I mean, I am struggling to pay bills big time so it would definitely be helpful". The increase reflects a surge in ticket sales.

The next drawing will be October 17 with the prize of $345 million.

Of course, the actual amount you'll win is considerably less than a billion dollars, not just because of taxes and annuities and fine print things. If you don't win, maybe you'll have better luck Wednesday for the Powerball.
