Since nobody won Tuesday's Mega Millions Jackpot, the prize is now almost a BILLION dollars.

 

UPDATE 10/19/18 12:30 P.M.: The Mega Millions Jackpot is now officially over a BILLION dollars! The cash value of the jackpot is $565.6 million. Wow.

Original story:

Now you'll have the chance at an historic Mega Millions payout, because Friday's jackpot will be at least $868 million!

That jackpot could even get bigger before Friday gets here.

So after taxes how much would you take home if you hit Friday's jackpot?

According to MegaMillions.com you'd get a cool $494 million. Not to shabby for spending a couple of bucks on a ticket is it?

Of course you don't have to hit the jackpot to win big. Tuesday's drawing had several winners including one ticket in Texas that went for $5 million, and eight others(one in New York) that were good for $1 million.

Tuesday's winning numbers were:

3, 45, 49, 61, 69, Mega Ball: 9

The next drawing is this Friday, October 19 at 11 p.m.

Good luck!
