Mega Millions jackpot reaches $333 million
BATON ROUGE - The Mega Millions lottery game has reached an estimated jackpot of $333 million for the Tuesday night drawing, making it one of the largest jackpots in the history of the multi-state game.
The jackpot starts at $15 million and grows from there until a lucky winner is selected.
While Friday night’s drawing did not see one of those winners, a winner selected on Tuesday will have the option to collect the $333 million jackpot in the form of a 30-year annuity or take a one-time cash payout of $226 million.
Mega Millions tickets cost $1. The drawing is scheduled for 10 p.m. CST.
