Mega Millions Jackpot Bumped to $363 Million; Reminder to Play Responsibly
What would you do with $363 million? Mega Millions players can do some serious dreaming, since the jackpot was increased today to $363 million for Tuesday night’s drawing. Tuesday’s jackpot is the third highest ever offered in the game.
“If one player wins this jackpot in Missouri, they will become our largest prize winner ever,” said May Scheve Reardon, executive director of the Missouri Lottery. “While it is fun to dream about what you might do with this money, we are also reminding players to always play within their means. It only takes $1 to win.”
The Missouri Lottery urges players to sign the back of their tickets right away, and keep them in a safe place until they can check them. Players have until 8:59 p.m. on Tuesday to buy tickets for this drawing.
One player matched all five white-ball numbers in Saturday night’s drawing to win $250,000. That ticket was sold at Rapid Roberts, 1847 State Highway KK in Osage Beach.
