The Mega Millions jackpot continues to soar for this Tuesday night drawing after no tickets matched all six numbers in the previous drawing. For Oct. 4, the grand prize is estimated at $380 million. A jackpot winner always has the option to take the cash value of the prize in a single payment. That lump sum cash value for tonight’s prize is about $198 million, before withholding.
Did you know Mega Millions is the only major jackpot game with a second prize up to $5 million? A regular $2 ticket can only win you $1 million on a second-tier win, but the $1 Megaplier option will multiply that prize based on the multiplier drawn.
In the previous drawing, the Megaplier drawn was 4x. Any tickets that matched the five white balls drawn would have won $4 million. However, no tickets hit that win on Friday.
