Mega Millions jackpot nears record

CJ Gunther  EPA  REX  ShutterstockMega Millions Lottery forms are

This week's Powerball has an nearly equally impressive top prize, the game's fourth-largest jackpot in history, now at $345 million.

Mega Millions officials say no tickets matched all 6 numbers to claim the estimated $667 million grand prize in Tuesday night's drawing.

The next drawing will be Friday.

The Mega Millions jackpot has been increasing since a group of 11 co-workers in Santa Clara County, Califiornia, shared a $543 million prize back in July.

It's not yet known whether anyone had bought a winning ticket. That reflects the game's long odds, at one in 302.5 million.

She accused Saudi Arabia of "state terrorism" and called on the worldwide community to take action against the kingdom. To reporters, to anybody. "It's not possible for us to stay silent regarding an incident like this", Erdogan said.

The $654 million would be the payout if a victor selects for the annuity option, paid out over 29 years.

The next Mega Millions drawing will be held Tuesday at 11 p.m. ET, and tickets must be purchased by 10:00 p.m. Tuesday to be eligible. If you match one yellow ball (which is the last number drawn), then you'll win $2. The store received $1 million from Mega Millions for making the sale.

So how can you play Powerball and Mega Millions from outside the United States?

The cash option on the Mega Millions prize is an estimated $372.6 million, while the cash option on the Powerball prize is an estimated $199 million. In addition, there's the Powerball jackpot that up for grabs Wednesday night, which is worth an estimated $380 million.
