"When a (Powerball) jackpot or Mega Millions goes over $500 million, that's when you really start seeing an uptick in sales of those games", Teja said. This institution on South Land Park Drive near Florin Road has attracted Sacramento residents for years thanks to its reputation as a lucky retailer.

Mega Millions drawing is Friday night and the jackpot has reached $548 million. That drawing is set to be held after 10 p.m. Saturday (Oct. 13).

The odds of winning are about 300 million-to-1.

The jackpot's been growing since it was last won July 24. One California ticket matching 5 numbers worth $440,703 was sold in Palmdale.

The lottery says it will give away 250 tickets for the $548 million drawing at the Kroger located at 3101 Richmond Road beginning at 1:30 p.m. Friday. After Tuesday's picks this week, the jackpot climbed $78 million after no one matched all six numbers. California is just one of three states to exempt state income tax on lottery winnings.

The $470 million prize came with a $265.3 million cash payout option, according to Mega Millions.

The second-largest jackpot was $648 million.

Mega Millions is available in 44 states, plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
