The Mega Millions Jackpot just upped the ante after there was no grand prize winner for Friday night's billion-dollar drawing.

The $1.58 billion jackpot drawing is Tuesday at 11 p.m. The winner could take home a lump sum of $757.2 million cash or they can collect an annuity over 29 years according to a Mega Millions press release.

"The growing jackpot is a source of entertainment and winnings for players while generating important dollars for the good causes supported by each lottery."
