Mega Millions powers up $400M jackpot for Tuesday

ATLANTA, GA (WALB) -

An estimated $400 million jackpot to a single annuity winner is slated for tonight's Mega Millions jackpot as players in Georgia continue to pick up large prizes.

The Mega Millions jackpot began rolling January 7th and has rolled 20 times.

Five lucky tickets worth $5,000 were purchased in Tallapoosa, Newnan, Atlanta, Lavonia and Albany from the March 14 drawing.

Mega Millions offers two jackpot payment options: the $400 million annuity prize paid out as one immediate payment followed by 29 annual graduated payments; or the cash option, which is approximately $224 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.

Proceeds from Mega Millions benefit education in Georgia.
