Mega Millions jackpot reaches $400M for Tuesday draw

PHOENIX (CBS5) -

The Arizona Lottery's Mega Millions jackpot has reached an estimated $400 million for Tuesday's drawing, the third-largest jackpot in the game's history.

Tuesday night's jackpot would also be the sixth-largest in U.S. lottery history.

Players have until 6:59 p.m. Tuesday to buy their tickets in Arizona. The time was moved up an hour due to the switch to daylight saving time, lottery officials said.

Players matching all six numbers could opt for the lump sum payout of about $224 million. If no one matches all six numbers the jackpot rolls over to Friday night's drawing.

Mega Millions is offered in 43 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
