DETROIT (WWJ) – The Mega Millions lottery is worth $206 million dollars Tuesday night. Michigan Lottery spokesperson Andi Brancato says be sure to buy your ticket on time:
“For tonight’s drawing players need to make sure that they purchase their ticket before 10:45 p.m. – the drawing is at 11 p.m., said Brancato. “So, if you purchase your ticket after 10:45 p.m. it will be eligible for the next Mega Millions drawing.”
Some people feel they have a better chance picking their own numbers while others feel they’ll be closer to a win if the computer picks their numbers – Brancato says that neither is true.
“Most people tend to do an easy pick ticket which means you allow the computer to select the numbers for them but there is really no difference in the odds or your chances of winning, weather you do an easy pick ticket or you pick the numbers yourself,” said Brancato.
If you were to win Tuesday night’s mega millions and took the lump sum, you would be given a check for $151.9 million.
