The stakes are high for Tuesday night’s Mega Millions jackpot drawing. The jackpot is estimated at $160 million.

Mega Millions is played in 42 states and costs $1 per ticket. In some states, a mega multiplier can be added for an extra dollar, which could increase a jackpot by up to four times.

“We usually play the Powerball on a regular basis, but we play Mega when we have some winnings off of either our Powerball or Hoosier Lotto and we put in the Mega if it’s a decent sized jackpot,” said Barbara Islas.
