Tuesday is the day for The Mega Millions jackpot. Last Saturday, millions of hearts were broken when no one won the Powerball jackpot of $314 million. But combine it with the Tuesday Mega Millions Jackpot and bingo! The jackpot is now worth $1 billion.

This Tuesday, nearly the largest ever draw in the game- worth $654 million, with a cash option of $372 million is about to take place. Gordon Medencia, director of Maryland Lottery and Gaming and the lead director of the Mega Millions Consortium believes that this drawing might surpass the Mega Millions record of $656 million. This record was set in 2012 when three winning tickets split the winning prize.
