The Mega Millions jackpot ticked up $1 million, but there are nine different ways to win playing Mega Millions. One player in Missouri did the next best thing to winning the jackpot - matching five white-ball numbers. A ticket sold at Snak Atak in Granby earned someone a $250,000 prize. Only one other ticket sold in California qualified for that prize level.
If you took advantage of Jackpot July, you may still have a a free Powerball ticket for tonight's drawing. Mega Millions has a feature similar to Power Play. For an extra $1 at the time of purchase, you can add Megaplier to your ticket and win bigger non-jackpot prizes. A $250,000 prize becomes $1 million.
Don't forget about the big jackpots available on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights.
