Mega Millions Jackpot Bumped to $297 Million; Players Reminded to Play Responsibly
Due to strong sales, the Mega Millions jackpot was raised to $297 million – $158.9 million cash – for tonight’s drawing.
“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. tonight to buy tickets for this drawing.
