Tuesday’s Mega Millions drawing offers a $300 million jackpot

January 11, 2022 Posted by NC Lottery at 2:13 PM

Tuesday's Mega Millions drawing offers a nice, round $300 million jackpot for a lucky winner.

A winner in North Carolina could take home the jackpot as an annuity paying out the $300 million over 29 years or choose instead to take home $206.7 million in cash.

While playing for the growing jackpot, North Carolinians have won other big prizes. The New Year’s Eve Mega Millions drawing produced a $1 million win for someone who bought a ticket in North Carolina. The lucky ticket matched the numbers on all five white balls and was purchased at the Circle K on Williams Road in Lewisville in Forsyth County. The winner has not yet claimed the $1 million prize.

That $1 million check is ready and waiting for the winner. We’re hoping for more big wins in the Tuesday night drawing and would love one to be that $300 million jackpot.

The Mega Millions jackpot has been growing since a $108 million jackpot was won in the Oct. 22 drawing. The odds of winning a Mega Millions jackpot are 1 in 302 million.

Mega Millions tickets cost $2. North Carolinians can buy tickets for the 11 p.m. drawing at any lottery retail location in the state until 10:45 p.m. Tuesday night. Tickets can also be purchased through Online Play on the lottery’s website,, and with the NC Lottery Official Mobile App until 10:43 p.m.

Good luck North Carolina.
