The Mega Millions jackpot has hit $667 million, making it the largest jackpot in Mega Millions' history.
After several drawings with no winner, the jackpot rose to the record-breaking mark Tuesday. Tuesday's Mega Millions jackpot is also the third largest lottery jackpot in the country's history, behind the $1.5 billion Powerball jackpot in 2016 and last year's $758 million Powerball jackpot, said Carey.
If, once again, nobody were to win Tuesday's drawing, the jackpot would likely grow to more than $800 million, Carey said.
Jackpot Triple Play is unique in that for $1 players get a triple chance to win the jackpot, as each ticket has three sets of numbers to match with the winning numbers drawn.
Also, the game’s jackpot rolls over and down to make bigger prizes.
Jackpots start at $500,000 and can roll over to reach $2 million before rolling down to increase the lower-prize levels in each drawing until the jackpot is won.
Players win by matching three or more numbers from the same set to the winning numbers drawn.
Players can get an extra chance to win by combining all matches on the ticket by adding Combo for $1 more.
Tickets go on sale for the new Jackpot Triple Play game on January 30.
Drawings will take place every Tuesday and Friday night at pm, which you can see during the CBS4 News at 11.
The first drawing will be held on Friday, February 1, 2019. ET January 29, with the final drawing held that evening at p.m.
If there is not a jackpot winner in the final Lucky Money drawing, the jackpot will roll and carry over to the Jackpot Triple Play jackpot for the first drawing. John, 52, was found dead at his home in the Woodland Hills area, according to the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office.
