Mega Millions Jackpot Jumps to $297 Million

Friday, December 6th, 2013

Tickets for drawing available at Maryland Lottery retailers

Tonight’s Mega Millions jackpot has increased to $297 million with a $158.9 million cash option, thanks to increased sales this week. The $6 million jump was announced today.

This mega roll began on Oct. 4, following one of Maryland’s two Mega Millions jackpot wins this year. An Anne Arundel County man stepped forward in October to claim a $189 million jackpot. In February, a Mt. Airy couple won $26 million playing Mega Millions. So far this year, Maryland has seen 16 second-tier winners, including two with Megaplier who won $1 million.
