9/30/2013 11:32:27 AM

COLUMBIA, SC (September 30, 2013) – Tomorrow night’s Mega Millions® drawing is for an estimated $189 MILLION, the second largest purse seen this year.

While South Carolina has yet to produce a Mega Millions® jackpot winner, lottery players are hungry for one on the heels of South Carolina’s nearly $400 million Powerball® win.

“To follow up our recent Powerball® jackpot win with our first Mega Millions® jackpot win would be something special,” said Executive Director Paula Harper Bethea. “We’ve waited a long time to celebrate a Mega Millions® victory, over three years, so we feel that the time is right to bring this jackpot home to South Carolina.”

A South Carolinian will have to beat the 1 in 175 million odds to walk away with Tuesday night’s $129 million cash payout. The Lottery encourages all players to please, play responsibly.

For those wanting to take a chance on tomorrow night’s drawing, you must purchase tickets prior to 10 p.m. for the 11 p.m. drawing.

Good luck, South Carolina!
