    A Mega Millions lottery ticket is printed out of a lottery machine at a convenience store in Chicago on Friday.

DES MOINES, Iowa » The estimated Mega Millions jackpot has risen to $449 million, making it potentially the 7th largest lottery jackpot in the U.S.

If any ticket matches the balls drawn Tuesday, the jackpot will be the largest since a $448.4 million Powerball prize won by a New Jersey family May 7. The highest jackpot drawn in the country was a $1.6 billion Powerball jackpot won in January by players in three states.

The odds of picking the correct numbers on five white balls and one yellow ball in the Mega Millions game are one in 259 million.

The drawing will take place at 10 p.m. Central time.
