LITTLE ROCK, AR (News release) - Mega Millions® players from coast to coast are lining up for the hottest jackpot of the holiday season. With no jackpot winner in Tuesday’s drawing, the jackpot for tonight's (Dec. 13) drawing is an estimated $425 million. This is the second-largest jackpot in Mega Millions® history, and the fifth-largest ever in North America.

If one ticket matches all six numbers for the $425 million mega-jackpot, the winner will have the choice of receiving the full jackpot in 30 annual payments, or a cash option of approximately $228 million before taxes.

“The strong sales of Mega Millions® tickets mean more than just an exciting jackpot,” said Bishop Woosley, Director of the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery. “They mean greater profits to benefit each state in which Mega Millions® is played.”

Since the game started in Arkansas, several large prizes have been awarded, including three $1,000,000 prizes, one $500,000 prize, thirteen $250,0000 prizes, two $125,000 prizes and 88 prizes ranging from $10,000 - $40,000.

Mega Millions® drawings are held Tuesday and Friday evenings at 10 p.m. Central Time. Profits from every Mega Millions® ticket sold remain in the state in which the ticket was sold.

All net proceeds of the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery go to fund college scholarships for Arkansas students at in-state two- or four-year institutions of higher learning.
