MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Tuesday night’s Mega Millions jackpot has risen to $363 million.
It jumped by $7 million Monday due to strong ticket sales in Wisconsin and elsewhere around the country.
It’s the largest jackpot since the Wisconsin Lottery had its first Mega Millions’ drawing on Groundhog Day of 2010.
Meanwhile, the Lottery is still waiting to find out who won a million-dollars in the previous Mega Millions’ drawing last Friday night. The ticket was sold in Mosinee at an “R”-Store, a convenience store chain in north central Wisconsin.
The Badger State had just over 22,000 winners last Friday. About 10,000 tickets won $2 just by matching the Mega Ball.
To win the jackpot, players must match all 5 regular numbers plus the Mega Ball. The odds of that are 1 in 176-million.
