Lottery officials on Friday increased the Mega Millions jackpot to $790 million, giving players a shot at the nation’s fourth-largest jackpot. The next draw will take place on Tuesday. The jackpot has grown so big because it hasn’t had a winner in three months.

The highlighted $790 million pre-tax prize is for a winner who takes an option annuity, which is paid in 30 annual payments. Most players choose the cash option, which for Friday’s drawing would be $464.4 million. Mega Millions is played in 45 states as well as Washington, DC and the US Virgin Islands.
