“You can’t win if you don’t play,” is a very popular phrase to throw around when the lotto jackpot gets this high. With no winners from yesterday’s (October 9th) drawing, the Mega Millions jackpot is up to $548 Million. That is the third highest the jackpot has ever reached. I’d recommend buying a ticket but bare in mind that 44 states in total participate in this contest. The next Mega Millions drawing is on Friday night at 10PM central.
