Money, money, money!!! The Mega Millions lottery jackpot is filled with tons of it — at least $400 million. This is the second largest Mega Millions jackpot in history.  It has reportedly sparked lottery fever, from coast to coast, with long lines of ticket buyers.This money pot has been growing since October first. Since then, the jackpot has rolled 20 times without a winner.

A pretty grim holiday season for double-M players in California. They have been missing out on some of the big money.  It’s been weeks since anyone here has matched five of the winning numbers, excluding the Mega Ball. Why is this a big deal? In last Tuesday’s game that lucky match was worth $2, 452, 280. That’s a lot of green that got left on the table. The winning numbers from Tuesday’s draw: 5, 12, 22, 41, 65 and the Mega Ball 13.

Who knows. Someone here could get real lucky on this Friday the 13th. The next Mega Millions  draw is tonight, after the ticket buying closes at 7:45 p.m.
