If you thought a half a billion was big - hang on!  The jackpot has officially been raised to 540-million dollars for the drawing on Friday.   I wouldn't doubt if it grows again tomorrow.

Listen for your chance to win 10 packs of Mega Millions tickets all day!  When you hear us tell you, be caller #12 at 547-KORD!

Good luck!

If you are a Mega Millions jackpot winner, you will have the choice of a Cash Option or an Annual Payout. Annuity option: Provides annual payments over a 26-year period. For every $1,000,000 in the jackpot, you will receive approximately $38,500 per year before taxes.  So, if you won the 540 Million on Friday you would receive approx. $20,790,000 a year for 26 years (minus taxes)!  Cash option: A one-time, lump-sum payment that is equal to all the cash in the Mega Millions jackpot prize pool. Prize claim parameters vary from state to state.  This time the cash out option is about 389 million.  I’m thinking I’ll take the cash out option.   You?

Winning numbers will be drawn Friday night at 7:45 p.m. get them HERE.
