The Mega Millions jackpot, which will be drawn Tuesday, is an estimated $346 million, the game's highest jackpot since someone won a $540 million jackpot July 8, 2016 on a ticket sold in Indiana. The winning ticket from Wednesday night's drawing was sold at Pilot Travel Center on Route 173 in Hampton. Drawings are televised live at 10:59 p.m. on New York Lottery draw stations.
