For the third time this year, the Mega Millions jackpot has surpassed $400 million. Friday night’s drawing on Oct. 7 offers a grand prize estimated at $410 million. Jackpot winners always have the option of taking the cash value of the prize in a single payment, instead of the annuity prize that is paid out over 29 years. The lump sum cash value of tonight’s jackpot is $208.2 million, before withholding.
A couple of lucky players in the previous drawing hit prizes of $1 million each. Players in Louisiana and New Jersey both matched the first five white balls, but not the yellow Mega Ball. With the $1 Megaplier ticket option, those players would have doubled their prizes in Tuesday’s drawing.
