Tuesday night’s Mega Millions lottery game is looking at an estimated jackpot of $400 million, the third highest jackpot in the history of the game.
Interest in the game continues to climb, as no one matched all of Friday’s numbers. Lottery experts say more tickets are sold when big-game jackpots reach or exceed $300 million.
According to the Mega Millions website, the $400 million prize — with a lump-sum cash option of $224 million — would trail a Mega record $656 million jackpot given away March 30, 2012, and a $648 million prize won on Dec. 17, 2013. Overall, the prize would be the sixth largest lottery jackpot of all time.
