Mega Millions, I hear you say. Well, we’re up to $379 million now and all eyes turn to the draw on Friday, Dec. 9 to see if the jackpot is finally won.

What are my odds of winning the jackpot?

Interest is going through the roof as the Mega Millions draw produced no winner once again on Tuesday, Dec. 6 and that initially pushed the jackpot up to $379 million for Friday’s draw. Just to make that clear, it’s a cash option of $202,600,000. That’s a lot of zeros!

The other thing to remember is that each ticket’s odds of winning are 1 in 302.6 million... but someone has to win, so why not you?

When is the next Mega Millions draw?

It’s worth noting that the above figure drops somewhat if you decide to take the cash option. In that case you’d be paid a $202.6 million lump sum. So, how to get involved...

Mega Million jackpot draws are held twice a week at 11 p.m. ET every Tuesday and Friday. The next Mega Millions drawing is Friday, Dec. 9 at 11 p.m.

In which states can I play Mega Millions?

Mega Millions lottery tickets are available in 45 states, with Alabama, Alaska, Hawaii, Nevada, and Utah being the only states where it is not available. You can also buy a ticket in D.C. and the US Virgin Islands.

If you are in Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, New Hampshire, North Carolina, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, Virginia, or the District of Columbia, you can buy tickets online by registering with the lotteries in those jurisdictions.
