Massachusetts residents who buy Mega Millions tickets have a chance to win even bigger – the jackpot reached $330 million Sunday and may jump even higher before Tuesday night’s drawing, the Massachusetts State Lottery said.

The jackpot was a $40 million jump from Saturday’s jackpot, and it is now the fifth highest prize in Mega Millions history. Officials said in the release that “intense sales” nationwide are pushing the jackpot to ever higher numbers.

The next drawing for the multi-state game is slated for 11:24 p.m. Tuesday on WCVB-TV Channel 5.
