The grand prize for Tuesday night’s Mega Millions drawing has climbed to an estimated $241 million with a one-time cash payout option of $170.9 million. Tuesday night’s jackpot drawing, the first official day of spring, will be held at 11 p.m.
"With all the spring-like weather we’ve been experiencing, excitement is in the air across the state for tomorrow night’s Mega Millions drawing,” said Charlie McIntyre, Executive Director of the New Hampshire Lottery. “We hope the start of the new season will bring our first Mega Millions winner from New Hampshire.”
Tuesday night's jackpot is the highest jackpot in almost a year. A $319 million prize was shared by seven co-workers in New York State on March 25, 2011.
Mega Millions is drawn at 11 p.m. on Tuesdays and Fridays and is offered at more than 1,250 lottery locations throughout New Hampshire. Tickets are on sale until 9:50 p.m. on draw nights.
