Mega Millions Record Jackpot of $1.6 Billion Up For Grabs Tonight
The odds are high too, 303 million to one, but if you can beat the odds you could win the $1.6 Billion jackpot tonight (October 23, 2018).
According to NewsWest 9, the drawing will be held tonight at 10pm local time and if you get all five numbers on the white balls and the gold Mega Ball you will get the $1.6 Billion which after taxes would still be $904 Million for the cash option.
You can also decide to take the winnings stretched out over the next 30 years as well.
But there are other prizes if you can match some of the numbers too. Fifteen people won $1 million during the October 19 drawing by matching the five numbers on the white balls but not the Mega Ball.
Matching four of the white balls will get you $10,000 which is not as much as the grand prize but can still help get you out of a financial pinch.
If you don't win the Mega Millions tonight you can play Powerball tomorrow night which is up to $620 million.
If someone does win the big jackpot tonight, Mega Millions will drop down to the reset value of $40 Million for Friday Night's drawing.
