ATLANTA, GA (WALB) -

Mega Millions has a massive jackpot tonight with $344 million waiting to be won.  

The jackpot began rolling Oct. 4 and has rolled 19 times.  

Two winning tickets worth $5,000 were sold in Marietta and Atlanta from the Dec. 6 drawing.  

Mega Millions offers two jackpot payment options: the $344 million annuity prize paid out as one immediate payment followed by 29 annual graduated payments; or the cash option, which is approximately $184 million.  

It only takes $1 to play Mega Millions for a chance to win big. Players can multiply prizes with the Megaplier option for an additional $1 per play.  

As with all other Georgia Lottery games, proceeds from Mega Millions will benefit education in the state of Georgia.   Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corp. has returned more than $14.8 billion to the state of Georgia for education.

All Georgia Lottery profits go to pay for specific educational programs, including Georgia's HOPE Scholarship Program and Georgia's Pre-K Program. More than 1.6 million students have received HOPE, and more than 1.3 million 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.  

MEGA MILLIONS Draw Date: Tuesday, December 10, 2013.

Estimated Jackpot Amount: $344 million Annuity Amount: Jackpot prize paid out as one immediate payment followed by 29 annual graduated payments Cash Option Amount: Approximately $184 million Cost to Play: $1 per play; an additional $1 per play to add the Megaplier Drawings: 11 p.m. (ET) every Tuesday and Friday.
