Last Chance: Buy Tickets for $500M Mega Millions Jackpot

The next drawing in the multi-state Mega Millions lottery is Friday night.

Get to your local convenience store, supermarket or liquor store by Friday at around 10:30 p.m. for what will most likely be your last chance to win the largest jackpot in North American lottery history.

The multi-state Mega Millions lottery has reached an estimated $500 million after no winning tickets were sold for Tuesday night's drawing.

Friday's drawing will be one of the largest in lottery history, and is expected to draw a record numbers of players as a result. Due to high turnout for Tuesday's drawing, the jackpot jumped from $363 million to $500 million.

The largest Mega Millions jackpot to date was $390 million, with two winning tickets sold for the March 6, 2007, drawing — one in New Jersey (the Villas section of Lower Township), the other in Georgia.
