Mega Millions 'springs forward' to $171M | Shopping & Services
ATLANTA -- Mega Millions sprang forward with your clocks this weekend.
Tuesday's jackpot has jumped to an estimated $171 million, the Georgia Lottery announced Monday.
Mega Millions offers two jackpot payment options -- approximately $6.5 million a year for 26 years with the annuity choice, or a single payment worth approximately $124 million.
Tickets are only $1 per play. Players can multiply prizes with the Megaplier option for an additional $1 per play.
Who knows -- maybe you could be the next Marcia Adams, the College Park accountant who won $72 million in a January Mega Millions drawing.
As with all other Georgia Lottery games, proceeds from Mega Millions benefit education in the state.
