With a grand prize estimated at nearly one BILLION dollars, tonight's lottery jackpot will  be the largest in the history of Mega Millions. While odds of winning are an approximate - and astronomical -  300 million-1, it's still worth a few bucks.  How do you select your 'lucky' numbers?

The next Mega Millions drawing will take place tonight at 11 pm.  For a total of $2, you'll have your shot at taking home the largest grand prize jackpot in the history of Mega Millions.

To play, players may pick six numbers from two separate pools of numbers. You'll choose five different numbers from 1 to 70 and one number from 1 to 25.

 

Most people have their favorite or 'lucky' numbers, others go with kids or grandkids birthdays and some - perhaps a little short on time - may select Easy Pick/Quick Pick. You win the jackpot by matching all six winning numbers in a drawing.

The largest jackpot ever announced was back in January of 2016 when it was roughly 1.6 billion dollars.
