July 24, 2018 - 7:35 am

DETROIT (WWJ) - How would you like to become rich overnight?

Over a half billion dollars are on the table for Tuesday night's Mega Millions drawing, now standing at $512 million -- or a $303 million cash option.

No one has purchased a winning ticket since early May, leaving the jackpot to swell.

The last big Mega Millions winner from Michigan was when Kevin Blake split a $42 million jackpot last October. The largest Mega Millions jackpot ever won in Michigan was $208 million, by a Port Huron couple in April 2005.

Winning numbers can be heard after 11 p.m. on WWJ-950 and WWJNewsradio.com.
