The Mega Millions jackpot is now estimated at $586 million for Tuesday's drawing.
That means the winner, if he or she chooses the cash option, would take home $316.5 million before taxes.
This jackpot is the second-largest Mega Millions jackpot ever. The current record is at $656 million. It was shared by 3 Mega Millions players in Illinois, Kansas, and Maryland in 2012.
There were no winners in Friday's $425 million jackpot, and strong ticket sales keep on pushing the jackpot higher!
