Massive mega Millions jackpot, odds of winning are even higher
WEST ALLIS - The Mega Millions jackpot has grown to at least 425 million dollars and people are out in force buying tickets for Friday night's drawing. There hasn't been a big winner in Mega Millions since early October. Back then, lottery officials raised the odds for Mega Millions from 1 in 176 million to 1 in 256 million. Mega Millions went from using 56 numbers to 75 to raise the odds. The cash option for a single winner Friday night is a pay out of 228 million dollars, but with the long odds it's very possible the jackpot could roll over again. If that's the case, the Mega Millions jackpot would be worth more than 550 million for Tuesday's drawing.
