If you've never tried your luck at the lottery, now may be the time.
The next grand prize will probably be even higher!
CBS News reported: The Mega Millions jackpot was estimated to hit $1.28 billion by Friday night's drawing, the lottery game said in a news release. If a winner wanted to take the lump sum of cash, they would walk away with $747.2 million in cash before taxes.
According to the Associated Press, lottery officials expect the prize will grow to $1.7 billion for the next drawing Tuesday if no one wins on Friday. That would be the largest-ever Mega Millions win.
It remains unclear if any winning tickets were sold. The Mega Millions website crashed immediately after the numbers were announced.
Now isn't that something?! Things that make you go, "hmmm..."
Will you try your luck for next drawing?
