LITTLE ROCK — The jackpot for Tuesday’s Mega Millions drawing will be $363 million, the highest the prize has been in over a year, lottery officials said Monday.
The prize is approaching the $380 million level it reached in January 2011 before being won by two players with winning tickets, one from Washington state and one from Indiana. The jackpot was split between them.
No Arkansan has yet won the Mega Millions jackpot, but some have won large prizes. A ticket sold in Blytheville matched enough numbers in Friday’s drawing to win a $1 million prize, thanks to a multiplier that the player bought for an extra $1, lottery officials said.
By Monday the Arkansas ticket holder had not claimed the prize. No one won Friday’s jackpot of $290 million.
