Mega Millions offers record jackpot on Tuesday

Tuesday's Mega Millions jackpot is approaching record territory, and it's not the only game offering huge payouts. There hasn't been a Mega Millions victor since 11 California co-workers split a $543 million stake in July.

"Players are having fun and ticket sales are growing, which is great news for the education programs we fund", said Rebecca Hargrove, President and CEO of the Tennessee Education Lottery. Since the jackpot reset in July there have been 17.5 million winning tickets at all the prize levels, with 25 winners taking home prizes of $1 million or more.

Mega Millions lottery tickets rest on a counter at a Pilot travel center near Burlington, N.C., in 2016.

Your odds of winning the jackpot is about 1 in 303 million. So don't quit your day job just yet.

The other multi-state lottery game, the Powerball, also has a jackpot with a sizable sum.
