12/2/2013 11:23:39 AM

COLUMBIA, SC (December 2, 2013) – With no winner in Friday night’s Mega Millions® drawing, the jackpot has climbed to $257 MILLION for Tuesday.

That’s $139 million cash to the winner of the largest jackpot seen this year.

The Lottery is reporting brisk ticket sales in South Carolina, where Friday night’s post-Thanksgiving drawing saw more than 35,000 players win anywhere from $1 up to $5,000.

To win the jackpot, a South Carolinian will have to beat the 1 in 259 million odds.

Mega Millions® tickets are $1 each. For an extra $1, players can purchase Megaplier® for a chance to multiply their non-jackpot winnings up to five times. Prizes up to $5 million are possible with the purchase of Megaplier®.

Tickets must be purchased by 10 p.m. for Tuesday’s 11 p.m. drawing.

Good luck, South Carolina!

Please, play responsibly.
