Another relatively uneventful Mega Millions drawing concluded on Friday with no jackpot winner and no winners of $1 million or more. Of course, there were plenty of lesser prizes awarded, as there are several ways to win on a Mega Millions ticket.
As for tonight, the Mega Millions jackpot is up to an estimated $39 million on this Tuesday, March 22. The lump sum cash value, if a winner were to take the prize in a single payment, totals about $25.3 million before taxes.
