Just this week we talked about how the Mega Millions was over 400 million, well the jackpot just got sweeter. The Mega Millions jackpot is nearing half a billion dollars.

The prize rose to 490-million-dollars after no one won during Tuesday’s drawing. That now puts the cash option at around 372-million. This makes the prize the eighth largest it’s ever been in history. The next drawing will be held on Friday night.

As for Powerball, no one got all the numbers last night, but a few walked away with a million bucks. That jackpot will be up to $470 million for Sunday night’s drawing.
