LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- The Mega Millions jackpot now sits at $257 million ahead of tonight's drawing.
Lottery players are rushing to stores in Kentuckiana in hopes of scoring a winning ticket. If a Hoosier were to win, it would be the third largest prize ever in Indiana. If it seems far-fetched that someone locally could win, think again.
On November 29, 18 employees at UPS hit a $1 million Mega Millions ticket.
The odds of winning the jackpot are one in 259 million.
The deadline to buy a ticket is 10:44 tonight.
