Jackpot for tonight’s Mega Millions drawing reaches $433 million

Mega Millions jackpot now close to $500 million

The Mega Millions jackpot continues to grow.

The record for the highest Mega Millions jackpot was set in 2012 when three winners in Illinois, Kansas and Maryland split a $656 million prize.

The $433 million jackpot is the third-largest Mega Millions jackpot this year.

Tuesday's jackpot ranks as the fifth-largest in Mega Millions history. The drawing was at 11 p.m.

On the other hand, the odds of winning Powerball are a little better at 1 in 293 million, according to the statement. "Even if a player doesn't win the jackpot, they can still be a big victor".

There will be a Powerball drawing Saturday. This is the seventh time the jackpot has exceeded $400 million.

The Lotto America jackpot has been climbing since being won in Iowa on May 5th. The largest was a $91.8 million cash-value prize claimed by a Virginia man in 2015.

This year, 20-year-old Shane Missler of Port Richey won a $451 million prize on January 5, while Richard Wahl of Vernon, N.J., won $533 million on March 30.

The odds of winning "scratchers" - the instant-winner tickets that cost from $1 to $50 - are better, but it's still no way to get rich. If you match 4 white only, you'll win $500.

Tickets are $2 each, with the Megaplier option for an additional $1.
