Six lucky numbers could make someone very happy this holiday season. The Mega Millions Lottery is near record-breaking, flaunting a whopping jackpot of $586 million for Tuesday's drawing.
Iowans snatch up tickets, as a local Hy-Vee in Waterloo sold about 140 tickets Monday. Asst. Manager Raene Wason said some folks have been coming in twice daily buying Mega Millions tickets, spending hundreds of dollars.
The Mega Millions current record is $656 million, set in March of 2012. The lead director for Mega Millions said ticket sales are actually ahead of projections for Tuesday's drawing.
Experts anticipate no winner by Dec. 24 could mean the jackpot soaring to $1 billion.
Ticket sales will end Tuesday at 8:59 p.m. for the drawing at 11 p.m. EST.
