How high can it go?

The folks at Mega Millions have increased the estimated jackpot for Friday night’s drawing to $540 million.

That amount is based on a 26-year payout. If you take it lump-sum you only get $389 million.

Closest place to buy a ticket is Georgia.

A half-billion reasons to drive to Georgia

Okay, fess up. How many of you are planning a road trip to Georgia or have called a friend or relative in another state to buy Mega Millions tickets for you?

When Mega Millions and Powerball entered into an agreement to allow lotteries to sell tickets for both games, Florida passed. Georgia started selling Powerball, so its residents no longer have to drive to Florida or other surrounding states to buy a ticket.

In case you missed it, the Mega Millions jackpot for Friday night is $500 million. That is the largest jackpot ever in North America and is based on a 26-year payout.

The only other states in the Southeast that don’t offer Mega Millions are Alabama and Mississippi.

In Mega Millions, you pick five numbers from 1 to 56 and one number from 1 to 46. Match all six and you win the jackpot.

If you match the first five numbers you win $250,000.
