    Mega Millions Jumps to $400 Million

    Get those office pools together - the Mega Millions jackpot is growing to $400,000,000.

    The lottery grand prize has been growing since the last win on Oct. 4 and this Friday it will be an estimated $400 million.

    If you choose the cash option that would mean $216 million before taxes. 

    The cut-off time to purchase tickets is 7:45 p.m. PT on the day of the drawing.

    In April 2012, a San Diego man matched five of six Mega Million numbers winning a jackpot of $227,955.
