#megamillions Brisk Sales Boost Mega Millions Jackpot to Estimated $333 Million

August 27th, 2009

Due to high sales, tonight's Mega Millions jackpot is now an estimated $333 million, raised from $325 million. This is the second largest jackpot ever in the Mega Millions game.

If a single ticket matches all six numbers in tonight's drawing to win the jackpot, the winner will receive annual payments of about $12.8 million for 26 years.  If the winner chooses to take the immediate cash value of the jackpot, he or she will receive about $210.4 million before taxes. 

If no ticket wins the jackpot tonight, the jackpot will most likely set the record for the largest ever in North America.
