Currently it’s the second largest jackpot in U.S. lottery history, the Mega Millions lottery jackpot is sitting at $586 million for tonight’s drawing (Tuesday, December 17th). If you can successfully match the 6 lottery balls from the two pools of numbers you’ll win the $586 million or you can take the cash option of $316 million! You’ll need to select five numbers from a pool of 1 to 75 and then one number for a pool of 1 to 15 and the odds of successfully matching the six numbers are close to 1 in 259 million!

They’re odds, but they’re kind of stacked against you as they are the worst odds in any of the lotteries in America. The jackpot has grown to this amount because there hasn’t been a winner in the lottery’s last 21 drawings, it’s last winner was back on October 1st.

Mega Millions lottery predicts lottery sales could top off at nearly a million tickets being sold each hour up to the drawing cut off time. With ticket sales going that well, the jackpot could reach $600 million by the time the numbers are picked at 10p tonight. At the time I write this post though the jackpot is sitting at $586 million!
