Friday Mega Millions Jackpot Estimated At 4th Largest In Game History At $685-M

      Because of high sales, the estimated jackpot for tonight’s Mega Millions® Lotto drawing has been increased to $685 million dollars, the 4th largest in the game’s history, or $347.8 million with the cash option selected.

      The Mega Millions jackpot starts at $20 million and continues to grow each drawing until it is won. There have been 21 drawings since October 18 without a jackpot winner.

      Historically, once the jackpot reaches a certain size, tickets sales start increasing. The Nebraska Lottery sold over 134,000 Mega Millions tickets last week, a jump of 19% from the week before, and the number is expected to jump again this week.

     Nebraska Lottery Director Brian Rockey says that no matter how big the jackpot is or how many people buy tickets, the odds of winning remain the same – 1 in 302-million
