ATLANTA, GA (CBS46) -

Thousands of Georgians are expected to buy lottery tickets ahead of Tuesday's drawing for the largest Mega Millions jackpot so far this year - $344 million.

The 11 p.m. ET drawing could result in a near-record U.S. payout after no one claimed the top prize of $297 million on Friday.

If a single winner were to claim Tuesday's prize and chose a cash prize instead of an annuity, it would amount to $184 million, according to the Mega Millions website.
