Mega Millions® Jackpot Increases to $260 Million
Strong sales have pushed the Mega Millions® estimated jackpot to $260 million for tonight's drawing! If the jackpot gets hit tonight and the winner chooses the cash option, the lump sum payment is estimated at $158.5 million.
There have been 19 Mega Millions ® drawings without a jackpot winner since the current run began on March 25, 2015. Although no one has snatched the jackpot, Rhode Island Lottery players have still had some luck. There have been three winning tickets worth $5,000 and one worth $25,000 sold in Rhode Island since the March 27 drawing.
The PowerBall® jackpot has also been steadily climbing and is at $188 million for Wednesday's drawing.
All players should sign the back of their tickets immediately upon purchase so no one else can wrongfully claim their prize.
