If you are one of those people who are only interested in playing the lottery when the jackpot hits sky high levels, it may be time for you to get in the game. The Mega Millions jackpot is now worth $375 million.

No one matched all six numbers or even the first five numbers in Friday’s drawing which pushed the jackpot up to $375 million or $226 million if the win takes the cash option.

Now Tuesday night's jackpot would be the 10th-highest Mega Millions payout of all-time.

A Mega Millions ticket costs $2. The odds of a ticket matching five numbers and the Mega Ball are 302,575,350 to 1. It's a 1 in 12,607,306 shot to win the second prize of at least $1 million by matching five numbers.

Mega Millions is played in Ne Jersey and 43 other states, Washington D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Drawings are held on Tuesday and Friday.
