Mega Millions Jackpot Grows To $586 Million

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Haven’t finished your holiday shopping? Perhaps you should buy your relatives a lottery ticket.

No one had the winning ticket, matching all six numbers, for Friday’s Mega Millions jackpot drawing so the total continues to grow.

Tuesday’s jackpot will be $586 million.

Officials expect the amount to jump even more, as people go into a buying frenzy, and it could top the largest Mega Millions jackpot ever claimed.

The largest so far was $656 million back in 2012.

Just to keep things real, though — the odds of winning are about one in 259 million.
