"This is now the largest Mega Millions jackpot ever".

The jackpot has been growing since July, and this is now the second largest jackpot in the history of the lottery game.

The Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots combined are just short of $1 billion ahead of this week's lottery drawings.

The last time Mega Millions was this big, it was only worth $2 million more.

If someone wakes up Wednesday a multi-millionaire, they are encouraged to do a few things before cashing in the ticket. "With a little luck, we may still break that record by Tuesday".

The odds of winning Tuesday's drawing is more than 302 million to one. The next Mega Millions drawing will be Tuesday.

Even though no one took home Friday's big prize, there were 2,651,183 winning tickets on the October 12 across all prize levels.

Since the Mt. Juliet victor added the Power Play option for an extra dollar, the base prize of $50,000 was tripled, as the multiplier number last night was three.

That's when the next Powerball drawing is. Winning tickets in that drawing came from Illinois, Kansas and Maryland.

The cash option, which is favored by almost all winners, is $372 million.
