BRAINTREE (CBS) – What would you do with a few hundred million dollars?
That’s what Massachusetts lottery players are asking themselves as the Mega Millions jackpot surged to a remarkable $390 million after no one won the grand prize over the weekend.
No one has matched every number in the last 31 straight drawings. The cash option for Tuesday’s drawing is now $265.4 million.
The $1 tickets for the next drawing can be bought until 10:45 p.m. on Tuesday.
The highest Mega Millions jackpot ever was $656 million, hit in 2012.
Players might also want to pick up a Powerball ticket while they’re at it – that jackpot is now $222 million.
