The weekend is here, and so is another huge Mega Millions jackpot in tonight’s drawing. The grand prize for Sept. 9 is estimated at $210 million. Jackpot winners can choose to get the full amount, paid out in 30 payments over 29 years, or take the cash value. The cash value of tonight’s prize is $114 million, before withholding.
On Tuesday, the Mega Millions drawing produced one winner of $1 million. A ticket sold in Iowa beat the odds and matched all five white balls drawn, but missed the gold Mega Ball. The chances of hitting that prize are 1 in 12.6 million.

How to check your PA Lottery tickets and claim prizes
The PA Lottery sells winning tickets every day, and millions of dollars in prizes go unclaimed each year. It’s easy to check your tickets to make sure you don’t leave money on the table. Any PA Lottery retailer can scan your tickets, or you can scan your own tickets with the PA Lottery mobile app. If your ticket is a winner, immediately sign the back of it.
Winning tickets are valid for one year after the drawing or the game’s end sale date. Prizes up to $2,500 can be claimed at a PA Lottery retailer. The retailer will pay by cash, check, or money order if they are able to. Prizes over $600 require the winner to fill out a claim form, available anywhere that sells lottery tickets.
For larger prizes, players should claim by mail or in person at an area lottery office. PA Lottery offices are located in Middletown (lottery headquarters), Philadelphia, Wilkes-Barre, Harrisburg, Clearfield, Pittsburgh, Erie, and Lehigh Valley. For more information, visit the PA Lottery website.
