EVERY MINUTE: 3,400 Mega Millions tickets are being sold in Kansas

Mega Millions could balloon to $2B if nobody wins next drawing

If one person wins the entire jackpot, after taxes are withheld, the victor could still afford to send more than 1,500 students to Harvard University.

And probably buy a house and new vehicle, she said Monday morning while working as a cashier at the Shell gas station on Third and Joliet streets, La Salle.

At least $1.6 billion is on the line when the Mega Millions numbers are drawn Tuesday.

Another added a hopeful note to their tweet, writing, "I didn't win #MegaMillions this time".

Mega Millions has already smashed its own jackpot record, which was $656 million, shared by winners in three states in March 2012.

The jackpot is now the largest in USA lottery history, surpassing a 2016 Powerball jackpot that previously held the title.

Mega Millions tickets cost $2 and are sold in 44 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands, the website says.

The next Mega Millions drawing is set for 11 p.m.

The current Mega Millions jackpot is now the world's largest lottery jackpot in history. Here are some answers for someone holding that prized lottery ticket for what would be the largest lottery jackpot in USA history.

$1.6 billion to be exact and if you choose the lump prize you could bring home 904 million in cash. "We're selling a lot of a lot of tickets", said Casimer Vermac with Cold Case Beverage.

"I'm here to buy some Mega Millions of tickets!"

Odds are, someone within earshot is hatching a plan to buy mansions and yachts as long as a city block.

"I'd probably start in Hawaii, take a cruise, go to Florida for a little bit, go to California", Maldonado said.

If Joey, Chandler, Monica, Ross, Rachel, and Phoebe can't stay friends while talking about sharing money (even before they actually won a penny), what hope does an average friendship or coworker-ship have? On Friday, he said about 3,300 tickets were sold, and the line wrapped through the aisles of the store.

"Take out a piece of paper or a good book and read and try to wrap your head around this thing", Payne said. "THIS SHOULD BE ILLEGAL" one person commented. While taking care of him and his family, he'd also give people food and help the elderly.
