Mega Millions Jackpot $290 Million

Mega Millions Jackpot $290 Million - The Mega Millions jackpot has climbed to $290 million for Tuesday’s drawing.

If there is a single winner in Tuesday night’s drawing, it will be the largest lottery payout to one person in U.S. history. A winner choosing the cash option would take home $182 million.

Most large lottery prizes are split up among several winners. The largest jackpot ever was a $390 million prize in March 2007 that was split between two ticket holders.
