Missouri Lottery officials announce an increase in Friday night’s Mega Millions lottery jackpot.

The Mega Millions jackpot is now worth $253 million dollars to a single winner, with a lump sum payout of about $157.5 million.

If you play in Missouri, you have until 8:59 p.m. to buy a Mega Millions ticket Friday.

The Powerball jackpot Saturday is also a pretty good chunk of change, with that jackpot standing at $300 million dollars to a single winner.
