Mega Millions Jackpot Grows Larger
It's the lottery game that doesn't get as much attention as the Powerball game does. With a jackpot close to $400-million on Tuesday, that will probably change. It's the multi-state Mega Millions game and just like the Powerball when there is no big winner the jackpot amount keeps growing larger and larger.
The Mega Milllions drawing on Friday was an estimated $363 million. There was no big winner for the jackpot however there were tickets sold in Louisiana that did claim some significant cash prizes.

The next time the ping pong balls drop the estimated top prize in the game will be an estimated $390 million. That is the annuity amount. Should you win and decide on a one time cash payout then you'd have to live with only claiming $256.4 million dollars.
The Mega Millions game is played in Louisiana and just about every other state in the union. The only exceptions are Mississippi, Alabama, Nevada, and Utah. In order to win the top prize in the drawing a player must match the five numbers drawn at random. They must also match the "Mega Ball".
