Mega Millions jackpot tops $500M”

The Mega Millions jackpot has reached $512 million for tonight's drawing.

Here's what you need to know about the game.

Individual lottery tickets cost $2 and can be purchased up until 7:45 p.m.

Drawings are held at 10 p.m. CT/11 p.m. ET on Tuesdays and Fridays.

Drawings are held every Tuesday and Friday.

Players must select five numbers from 1 to 70 and one Mega Ball from 1 to 25. Players can also select Easy Pick/Quick Pick to have numbers automatically chosen for them. All three states in our region - West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky - participate in Mega Millions.

The jackpot has rolled over to become the fifth largest jackpot in its history. If there is a victor, the cash payout will be worth $303 million. If you take the lump sum, that's still about $300 million in your pocket. The odds of winning a smaller prize is 1-in-24. This is the seventh time the jackpot has exceeded $400 million.

The odds of winning it all are 1 in 258 million, meaning you're more likely to get drafted by the National Basketball Association than becoming a Mega Millions victor.
