The upcoming Mega Millions is set to grab over a third of a billion dollars in drawings.
North Carolina Education Lottery officials announced Friday that a $360 million annuity prize will be up for grabs on Saturday's drawing.
According to the executive director Mark Michalko, every time the jackpot goes on a big roll like this, "it's an exciting time for all of our participants."
Jackpot sizes for Mega Millions and Powerball drawings were optional before someone in Vermont won the massive $366.7 million Powerball prize earlier this week.
$10,000 was won on a ticket purchased in Lexington, but the winner has not yet claimed it.
