With no one winning Mega Millions since July, the jackpot is an insane $1.6 Billion. And that number is going to go up before tomorrow nights drawing. That means Mainers will be spending more money today and tomorrow.
The Mega Millions lottery drawing being held Tuesday night is now for a pot of an estimated $636 million, not far off from the record $656 million Mega Millions prize awarded in March 2012. If there's no winning ticket, then Friday's drawing could top $1 billion.
