One lucky winner could win all $625 million of the Mega Millions jackpot Tuesday night.

It’s the fourth largest prize in the game's history.

The odds of winning are one in more than 302 million, but that is not stopping folks on the Central Cast from taking their chances.

If nobody wins today, the next drawing is on Friday, and if there is a winner, players still have a chance at Wednesday's Powerball jackpot, which is now at $550 million.
