If you haven’t bought a Mega Millions ticket yet, today is the day to do so.

With no one matching the winning numbers of Friday night’s Mega Millions jackpot, the pot has grown to $400 million for Tuesday’s drawing. The jackpot has been building since the last winner on Jan. 3.

The $400 million jackpot is the sixth largest in the United States. The largest jackpot on record was $656 million on March 30, 2012.

A lump sum payout of Tuesday's $400 million jackpot would net the winner $224.8  million before taxes.

The drawing is held at 11 p.m. on Tuesday, March 18.

I don't play the big lottery for one reason. If I'm going to get psyched up over the chances of winning then I have to be a worry wart too because my chances of dying in a car accident or some other misfortune on the way back home is far greater.
