As a result of brisk ticket sales, Georgia Lottery officials announced Monday that the Mega Millions estimated jackpot has been bumped from $550 million to $586 million for Tuesday's drawing.
This is the second largest jackpot in the game's history. The jackpot began rolling Oct. 4 and has rolled 21 times.
Mega Millions offers two jackpot payment options: the $586 million annuity prize paid out as one immediate payment followed by 29 annual graduated payments; or the cash option, which is approximately $316 million.
Tickets are $1.
