(Cleveland) The Mega Millions Jackpot is $344 million dollars for Tuesday night's drawing. That's the fourth highest jackpot in Mega-Millions history. Marie Kilbane with the Ohio Lottery says lottery retailers will be busy starting at around noon and from 5:00pm until pools close at 10:45 this evening.

Kilbane says there are plenty of opportunities to win big. The lottery recently changed the matrix and boosted the 2nd tier prize which starts at $1 million dollars.

Northeast Ohio has seen some big winners. In March of 2013 a ticket was sold in Westlake for $41 million dollars.

The odds of winning the big prize, by the way, 1 in 259 million. But Kilbane says you can't win if you don't play.
