Oh baby, that sure is a lot of green. Money makes the world go round. And wouldn’t it be fantastic if you had $396 million more in your pocket?

If you play the lottery in North Carolina, you might want to get yourself a Mega Millions ticket. No one won the jackpot on Friday so the amount will rise to an estimated $396 million for Friday night’s drawing. This is according to the lottery website. For whoever wins, the cash option will be a total of $273.6 Million. Winning that amount would be one heck of a way to start off the new year.

Players may pick six numbers from two separate pools of numbers – five different numbers from 1 to 70 (the white balls) and one number from 1 to 25 (the gold Mega Ball) – or select Easy Pick/Quick Pick. You win the jackpot by matching all six winning numbers in a drawing.

Luck might be on our side in North Carolina. Even though nobody won the big jackpot, three of the four tickets that matched all five white balls to win million-dollar prizes were in North Carolina. The Mega Millions costs $2 per ticket and is drawn twice weekly on Tuesdays and Fridays at 11 p.m. This week the drawing will be 1/25 at 11 pm. Good luck and if you have a gambling problem see here.
