It’s the one year anniversary for the Oregon Lottery adding Mega Millions to their game menu. Experts say tonight’s drawing is mega-exciting. Tonight, you could be a hundred-millionaire. $312-million is up for grabs in the Mega Millions drawing. Chuck Bowman with the Oregon Lottery says big jackpots brings mega-interest: “It seems like, once the jackpots get to that $100-million level, people really start playing. There are those loyal players that play, and I say this with air quotes "only" $20-million. They'll play then, 'cuz they think that $20-million is a indeed a big chuck of money, which it is. Ya know when it gets to $100-million and above, that's when the folks, who don't normally play decide; now it's time for me to play." Bauman says if you win, you will have the option of a lump sum or an annual payout of about $8 million a year for about 26 years. If you haven't already done so, you need to buy your ticket by 7 pm tonight.
