Tuesday’s Mega Millions® Jackpot Reaching Record Levels

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – West Virginia Lottery Director John Musgrave announced today that Tuesday’s estimated Mega Millions® Jackpot has been increased to $363 million by the Multi-State Lottery Association due to increased ticket sales. The new total is the third highest amount in the game’s history and the fourth largest jackpot in U.S. history.

“We are thrilled to see yet another super jackpot grow and are hopeful that someone right here in West Virginia will be the lucky winner,” Musgrave said.

Due to low interest rates, the estimated cash value for the next Mega Millions® drawing is an all-time record cash value amount of $259.8 million.
