Feeling lucky? lottery fever is back as Tuesday's Mega Millions jackpot has increased to $454 million or $319.7 million with the cash option selected.

Nebraska lottery officials say  there have been 33 consecutive Mega Millions drawings since March 8 without a jackpot winner.

If won, this will be the 3rd largest jackpot in Mega Millions history and 7th overall.

The Nebraska Lottery have began offering Mega Millions since 2010.

The largest Mega Millions jackpot on record occurred in March 2012 when three winners in Illinois, Kansas and Maryland split a $656 million jackpot.

Mega Millions jackpot winners have two options for collecting their payment: 30 annuity payments or one cash payment at present value. The annuity option provides annual payments that increase each year.

To qualify for Tuesday's drawing, you must purchase the tickets before 9:00 p.m. local time.

Officials say the winning  numbers will be announced at 10:00 p.m. Central Time and posted at the Nebraska Lottery website.
