Mega Millions jackpot grows to $636 million for Tuesday drawing

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The estimated jackpot for the Tuesday Mega Millions drawing has been increased to $636 million, according to Virginia Lottery officials.

The new total makes it the second largest in U.S. history, behind a $656 million in March 2012. The total could jump again before the drawing.

The Mega Millions jackpot stood at $425 million Friday, but no one matched all six numbers to win the prize.

If no one wins, officials say the next jackpot could top $1 billion.
