The billion dollar dream is still alive

No one ticket matched Friday's Mega Millions drawing, Tuesday jackpot goes to $1.6 billion

October 20, 2018 - 6:58 am

Mega Millions fever is going to last a few more days.

With no single ticket matching all six numbers in Friday night's drawing, the jackpot for Tuesday's game moves to a mind-boggling $1.6 billion.

That's billion. With a B.

The chance for a life-changing paycheck is expected to boost ticket sales up to the next drawing.

That ensures that the next game will offer the largest lottery prize in US history.

The jackpot began growing in July.

Many feel the $2 price of a single Mega Millions ticket is worth the risk, even though the chance of matching all six numbers is one in 302.5 million.

Mega Millions is played in 44 states as well as Washington, DC, and the US Virgin Islands.
