***THIS STORY WAS UPDATED FROM A PREVIOUS STORY TO REFLECT THE INCREASE IN JACKPOT***
The Mega Millions lottery jackpot now sits at a near record $1.28 billion for tonight’s drawing.

Tonight’s grand prize amount is the second largest in United States lottery history. If won by a single player, the cash payout would be worth $747 million.
Tickets are $2 per chance, and the odds of winning are one in 303 million. Tonight’s drawing is at 10 pm.
