Last Friday was a big day for the Mega Millions lottery. The bi-weekly game where players have a chance to walk home with tens or hundreds of millions of dollars turned several players into millionaires in its last drawing.

In total, four people won at least $1 million on Friday. For those who did not win, the next Mega Millions drawing is right around the corner.

The Mega Millions lottery will pick winners again on Tuesday night at 11 p.m. ET. Since nobody won the biggest prize of them all on Friday, the jackpot has grown to an enormous $245 million with a $148.3 million cash option. It has been nearly two months since the last time someone won the Mega Millions jackpot.

In order to play, one must purchase tickets that cost $2 apiece. Players are asked to pick six different numbers, with the final number coming from a different pool than the other five. Players win more money the more numbers they guessed correctly. Guess all six to win the jackpot.

If a player does not win anything on Tuesday, they can always play again on Friday. There is also the bi-weekly Powerball lottery on Wednesday and Saturday nights.
