Tonight’s drawing for the megamillion jackpot is a biggie – the jackpot has swelled to more than $400 million. Of course, the cash option is a mere $224 million. I guess I’d have a better chance of winning if I buy a ticket! Or would I?

Odds of winning the jackpot used to be 1 in 176 million. This past October, those odds changed to 1 in 259 million. Players used to have to pick six numbers from 1 to 56, but now it’s 1 to 75.
