MADISON, Wis. (AP) - With one of the nation's largest lottery jackpots at stake, officials say the grand prize is now worth an estimated $355 million, up from a previous estimate of $330 million.
Wisconsin Lottery spokesman Andrew Bohage says Tuesday night's Mega Millions jackpot has grown because of strong sales nationwide.
The jackpot is the fourth largest in U.S. history. It works out to about $224 million if taken as a lump sum.
Wisconsin began offering the multi-state Mega Millions game last year. The game is similar to Powerball - players try to win by matching five regular numbers plus the "Mega ball." Tickets cost $1.
Besides the jackpot, prizes range from $2 to $250,000. Drawings are held every Tuesday and Friday night.
The largest Mega Millions jackpot was $390 million in 2007.
