Money! That is what seems to be on everyone’s mind for 2022. If you play the lottery in North Carolina, you might want to get yourself a Mega Millions ticket.

No one won the jackpot on Tuesday so the amount will rise to an estimated $376 million for Friday night’s drawing. This is according to the lottery website. For whoever wins, the cash option will be a total of $256.4 million. Winning that amount would be one heck of a way to start off the new year.

Luck might be on our side in North Carolina. Even though nobody won the big jackpot, three of the four tickets that matched all five white balls to win million-dollar prizes were in North Carolina. The Mega Millions costs $2 per ticket and is drawn twice weekly on Tuesdays and Fridays at 11 p.m. Good luck and if you have a gambling problem see here.
