Mega Millions® Draws for $270 MILLION on Friday
3/6/2014 10:29:42 AM

COLUMBIA, SC (March 6, 2013) – Tomorrow night’s $270 million jackpot is the largest seen this year for the Mega Millions® game. Only 10 jackpots have been higher.

Interested shoppers can buy a ticket for $1 at most convenience stores and grocery stores in our state. For a second $1, the Megaplier® may be purchased to multiply non-jackpot prizes by 2, 3, 4, or 5.

The Lottery is reporting steady sales in a state hungry for its first Mega Millions® jackpot win.

A South Carolinian will have to beat the 1 in 259 million odds to walk away with Friday night’s $151 million cash payout.

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

Please, play responsibly.
