$400 Million Up For Grabs In Lottery Tonight

Posted: Updated:

An estimated $400 million is up for grabs in the latest Mega Millions jackpot.

Tuesday night's potential jackpot would be the sixth-largest lottery prize in U.S. history.

If a single player matches all six numbers, the winner would have the option of taking a $224 million lump-sum prize.

Mega Millions changed its rules in October to help increase jackpots by lowering the odds of winning the top prize.

Those odds are now 1 in 258.890,850.

If no one hits on all six numbers, the jackpot rolls over to Friday's drawing and a grand prize that would start marching toward $500 million.

Mega Millions is played in 43 states including Michigan, as well as the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
