DES MOINES, Iowa- The Mega Millions jackpot has been boosted to $586 million.

The hike pushes the prize for Tuesday's drawing closer to the $656 million U.S. record set last year.

Should nobody win this week, officials say the jackpot could surpass $1 billion for the Christmas Eve drawing.

Between 65 and 70 percent of the roughly 259 million possible number combinations will likely be in play when the numbers are drawn Tuesday.
