(Des Moines) Imagine a billion dollar lottery jackpot. That could happen if no one wins the next Mega Millions lottery drawing.
“You try not to think about it because it is a mind boggling amount of money,” stated Mary Neubauer of the Iowa lottery. “But we have been saying for about a year now that we could see a day when there would be a billion dollar jackpot. We thought it might take a little longer. But you never can tell.”
Neubauer says no one won Friday’s drawing—so the Mega Millions jackpot is now $550 million dollars. That drawing will be held Tuesday night.
