Mega Millions is a nationwide lottery played similar to the Powerball, but with slightly lower jackpots. Tonight’s Mega Millions is worth $125 million, or $81 million if you take the lump cash sum (before taxes.) If you want to know which Mega Millions numbers are most commonly picked, please see this story.

The chances of winning the Mega Millions is about 1 in 258 million, similar to the chances of winning the Powerball jackpot. Each time someone doesn’t win the jackpot, the jackpot grows for the next drawing. No one won last week’s drawing, so the jackpot has grown to $114 million.

How do you know if you won the Mega Millions? You’ll need to match five white balls in any order along with the Mega Ball. If you do win, make sure you know the deadline for claiming your prize. One Powerball winner still hasn’t claimed their prize, but the deadline is still far away. (Find out more about the Powerball deadlines here.)
