I’d be lying if I said that I’ve never daydreamed about winning the lottery, but I’d also be lying if I said I play regularly. Now may be the right time to jump into the Mega Millions drawing!

After weeks of no one hitting the right numbers, the jackpot grew to an astonishing $868 million, the largest prize in the game’s history. Tuesday night’s drawing yielded no winners, and as of Wednesday morning, eager folks are willing to take a shot by buying up tickets.

In a matter of hours, we are looking at a pot of $900 million. Wowza! It is noted that the reason for the spike is because the jackpot has been accruing since July, rolling over more than 20 times. Can you believe it?

All it takes is six magic numbers – including the Mega Ball – at $2 per play to try your luck. You don’t have to be a hardcore gambler to participate, but it sure is fun to fantasize about all the things you could do with that money. By Friday, who knows much the pot will grow?

In case you missed Tuesday’s night numbers, watch this video below to hear which ones earned someone $1,000,000. You too could win a smaller amount in the jackpot. Don’t forget to watch the drawing on Friday night at 11:00 pm EST to find out if you’re the lucky winner!

Will you play this time around? What would you do with all that money if you won? Are you surprised by the size of the jackpot?
