Do ya feel lucky? You should because the Mega Millions jackpot is officially the 10th largest in history. Not only that, no one’s won the jackpot since January.
WTNH reports that the next drawing is Friday night. All you need to do to win is match all six Mega Millions numbers in the next drawing. Doesn’t sound too hard.

That’s the beauty of the lottery and Mega Millions is the next jackpot to make someone’s dreams come true.

So, grab a ticket and cross your fingers during tomorrow night’s Mega Millions drawing. It might just be you who becomes Connecticut’s next millionaire.
