New York - The estimated jackpot for tonight’s Mega Millions drawing is now $420,000,000. The $15,000,000 boost is based on stronger than predicted sales across all 46 participating Lottery jurisdictions.

A single jackpot winner in tonight’s drawing would have the option of receiving the life-changing prize as an annuity with one immediate payment and 29 additional, graduated payments that add up to $420,000,000 or the winner could choose to receive the cash value of the annuitized prize. The cash value is equal to the amount the Mega Millions consortium would have to invest to pay out $420,000,000 over the annuity period. The cash value for tonight’s Mega Millions drawing is $237,000,000.

Tickets for tonight’s drawing can be purchased until 10:45 p.m. The live drawing will be televised at 11 p.m.

A Mega Millions prize of any amount may be claimed up to one year from the date of the drawing.
