The jackpot for tonight's Mega Millions drawing -- which has been accumulating since July 7 -- has reached $325 million, the third-largest sum in the multi-state lottery's history.
Sure, your chances of winning are just one in 176,000,000 -- if you only buy one ticket. But plenty of would-be winners are hedging their bets with multiple buys.
The cash payout is estimated at $210.4 million. But if there's no winner tonight, the jackpot will hit a cool $430 million.
