The most recent Mega Millions jackpot was $502 million, and it was divided by winners of tickets sold in California and Florida for the drawing on October 14.
Since then, there have been twenty lotteries conducted, and the top reward has continued to grow with each one.
Since its inception in 2002, the Mega Millions lottery has awarded 11 jackpot prizes of at least $500 million each.
The current Mega Millions jackpot is above $1.5 billion, which was won in 2018.
In July of this year, an individual in Illinois won a jackpot that was more than $1.3 billion.
As a result, lottery officials have estimated that Tuesday's prize will be $565 million — or more than $293 million if delivered in cash.
