Another day another dollar — hopefully, $1.6 billion.

Tuesday, Oct. 23 will be the next Mega Millions drawing.

The prize has now risen to a record-breaking $1.6 billion, the world’s largest-ever lottery jackpot.

The winner of the massive sum will have the option to pay out in cash, which would still be a whopping $904 million. 

Still, the odds aren’t looking good as you have a 1 in 302.5 million chance of winning.

Lottery officials say that 75 percent of the 302 million number combinations will be sold.

Meaning there is a chance no one wins and the prize keeps growing.

Tuesday’s drawing will be at 9 p.m. Click here to view current numbers.
