Strong sales have pushed the Mega Millions jackpot for tonight’s drawing to $425 million, with a cash option of $228.2 million. This is the second-highest jackpot ever offered in the multi-state game.
“This is an exciting jackpot, but please remember to play responsibly,” said May Scheve Reardon, executive director of the Missouri Lottery. “It only takes one ticket to win.”
The Missouri Lottery reminds players to sign the back of their tickets right away, and keep them in a safe place until they can check them. Even if you don’t win the jackpot, you might win one of the eight other prizes in the game.
Players have until 8:59 p.m. tonight to buy tickets for this drawing. For more information about Mega Millions, visit MOLottery.com.
