The mega millions lottery, $250 million jackpot waiting for someone with the winning ticket.There was no winner in Friday's prize drawing for Mega Millions, the multi-state lottery that Washington Lottery joined in 2002.
That means that the prize pot only continued to climb and now stands at a quarter of a billion dollars for Tuesday's 8 p.m. jackpot drawing.
The current record in Washington for a single winning ticket is $93 million, awarded in November 2002 to a Hoquiam man.

According to New York State lottery if someone wins the 250 million they will only receive about 146 after taxes. Payments can be a lump sum or installments.

Don't miss out the mega million chance. Remember you can watch the drawing live tonight at the start of WETM-18 news at 11.
