The Mega Millions jackpot is on the rise and players in North Carolina have the chance to win a $402 million annuity worth $272.1 million cash in Tuesday night’s drawing.
The jackpot stands as the highest since February 16 when a $96 million jackpot was won in New York.
“We’d love to see a player from North Carolina bring home the jackpot,” said Mark Michalko, executive director of the N.C. Education Lottery. “Remember if you do try there are nine ways to win. Besides the jackpot, you also could win prizes ranging from $2 to $5 million.”
The odds of winning a Mega Millions jackpot are 1 in 302.5 million. Since North Carolina joined the game, two North Carolinians have won jackpots.
The Powerball jackpot is also climbing. Wednesday’s Powerball drawing brings North Carolinians a chance to win $168 million as an annuity or $117 million cash. The odds of winning a Powerball jackpot are 1 in 292 million.
