Jackpot in History[/caption]
After no one correctly predicted all six numbers on Friday, the Mega Millions jackpot has risen to $1.05 billion ahead of the drawing on Tuesday.
With a $550.2 million cash option, Tuesday’s drawing is the fourth-largest Mega Millions prize ever.
The jackpot has increased since the spring, when a $20 million award was claimed on April 18 in Syracuse, New York. In addition to the $1.348 billion haul in January, which was the second-largest prize in the history of the lottery game, five other Mega Millions jackpots have been won this year.
