With no jackpot winner in Tuesday’s drawing, the jackpot for the Friday, March 30, 2012, drawing has been increased to an estimated $500 million. That’s the largest jackpot ever, breaking the old record of $390 million, which was set in the March 6, 2007, Mega Millions drawing.
This number shatters the record for the largest jackpot ever up for grabs in Kentucky, which prior to this run was a $380 million Mega Millions jackpot in January of last year. The largest win in the Commonwealth came from Powerball, when Rob Anderson of Georgetown won $128.6 million in December 2009.
Players have until 10:44 PM EST Friday night to buy their ticket.
