Do you have your ticket? The MegaMillions jackpot is closing in on $1 billion -- with a B.
As of 9 p.m. ET Wednesday, the jackpot stood at $900 million, with a cash-payout option of $513 million. Tuesday's drawing, which had a jackpot of $667 million, had no winners. The next drawing is Friday night -- plenty of time for the jackpot to rise another $100 million.
The largest-ever lottery jackpot was a PowerBall drawing in January 2016 worth close to $1.6 billion -- but that one was split three ways. (CBS News)
