EAST PEORIA, Ill. (WMBD) — If you’re dreaming of becoming a multi-millionaire, the countdown is on.

Lottery players will have a shot Tuesday at the eighth-largest jackpot in U.S. history, thanks to there being no winners in the past few weeks.

The Mega Millions jackpot has soared to $625 million dollars, the largest lottery prize since 2018.
