Mega Millions Reaches HalfABillion

Wednesday, March 28, 2012 - 3:30pm

Lottery jackpot is now largest in U.S. history.

With no winner in Tuesday's Mega Million drawing, the already bloated jackpot grew even larger, pushing close to the half-billion dollar mark.

The payout for the game now stands at a cool $476 million.

If you opt for the one time lump sum, you could take home $341 million.

47 tickets matched the first five numbers - 9, 19, 34, 44 and 51 - but not the Mega Ball of 24.

The new jackpot shattered the old U.S. lottery payout record of $390 million set by Mega Millions in March 2007.
