Tomorrow’s Mega Millions® Jackpot Is at $312 Million
Strong Mega Millions® sales have pushed the jackpot up for tomorrow night’s drawing. The jackpot is now at an estimated $312 million! If the jackpot gets hit tomorrow, it will be the 6th largest jackpot in Mega Millions® history.
There have been 14 consecutive draws without a jackpot winner since the current run started on February 1, 2011.
If the jackpot gets hit tonight and the winner chooses the annuity option, the $312 million jackpot would be paid over 26 years. If the winner chooses the cash option, the lump sum payment is estimated at $198.2 million.
All players should sign the back of their tickets immediately upon purchase so no one else can wrongfully claim their prize.
In addition to the rapidly growing jackpot, the subsidiary prizes, ranging up to $250,000, have many players opting for the Megaplier® feature, which for an extra $1 per wager, can multiply the prize amount to up to $1,000,000.
