Mega Millions jackpot climbs to $363 million

Spurred by one of many biggest pots of all time, the Mega Millions jackpot has ballooned a great estimated $363 million for Tuesday’s drawing, California lottery officials stated Monday.

After Friday’s drawing for $290 million came and went with out a jackpot winner, officials had projected the pot--based on ticket sales at the time period of drawing--would develop to $356 million.

On Monday, they upped the figure by $7 million, saying sales have outpaced expectations.

Now to get a far more sobering number: One out of 176 million could be the odds of winning the experience, is actually players pick six numbers.

The last jackpot winner was drawn Jan. 24, each time a 33-year-old Georgia woman won the $72 million pot. She selected the money option of $52 million.
