Mega Millions Jackpot now at $333 Million
LANSING, Mich. – The Mega Millions Jackpot is up to one-third of a billion!
Tuesday night’s Mega Millions jackpot is now up to $333 million. The cash option for tonight’s jackpot is $226 million.
The $333 million jackpot is the largest Mega Millions jackpot in 2016, according to Michigan Lottery officials. In January, one ticket purchased in New York matched the five white balls and Mega ball to win a $169 million jackpot.
