Like many others, I went and purchased a few Mega Millions lotto tickets in hopes of winning that MASSIVE jackpot that was $1 BILLION for the drawing Friday night. There was no winner. That means the jackpot gets even bigger ... as of now, the jackpot is estimated at $1.6 BILLION for the Tuesday (Oct. 10) drawing. Just as it did earlier in the week, the jackpot could be even larger by the drawing date.
