The cash option is about $225 million. That is, if you hit the jackpot.
"Having all three of these jackpots climbing at the same time has generated considerable excitement and we encourage people to keep the experience of playing these games fun by playing responsibly", Michael Sweeney, executive director of the Massachusetts State Lottery, said in a statement. Furthermore, since theLotter stores clients' tickets in OR, it abides by the US Immoral Acts Law, which stipulates that one is "prohibited from importing into the United States from any foreign country any lottery ticket".
With no lucky victor in Friday night's drawing, the Mega Millions jackpot swelled to $361 million for Tuesday's drawing.
"Some are playing just the Powerball because it has the highest jackpot, but most appear to be getting at least one ticket for both", Maloney added.
The jackpot has been rolling since it was last won at $42 million on October 13; that prize was shared by winners in MI and Rhode Island.
The Mega Millions victor was also drawn Friday without a victor. It has a $215 million cash option and the drawing is Tuesday evening.
Combining those prizes together, the two big multi-state lotteries together have a potential payout around $783 million. It was sold in MA.
Tickets cost $2 each, and both games offer a multiplier feature ("Megaplier" for Mega Millions and "Power Play" for Powerball) that can be purchased for an extra $1 per play.
UPDATE (10:38 a.m.): The Mega Millions jackpot has gone up to $361 million.
The Mega Millions drawing is televised every Tuesday and Friday at 11 p.m. on selected television stations.
