Mega Millions Jackpot Climbs to $415 Million and Expected to Grow

Have you ever dreamed of becoming a millionaire?  How about a Mega Millionaire?  The Mega Millions jackpot has climbed to an astonishing $415 million, one of the highest ever, California Lottery officials said.

The highest ever was $656 Million with winners in Illinois, Kansas and Maryland. That was closely followed with a $648 million jackpot with winners in California and Georgia.

Lottery officials say that this figure may climb higher as eager dreamers buy in on their chance to win. Of course, when you win you can accept your winnings in an initial payment followed by 29 annual payments or you can accept the $286 million cash option.
