The jackpot for tonight’s Mega Millions drawing is at $309 million – the ninth-largest in the game’s history – and could grow before the drawing.

The jackpot has been building since the last winner in Tennessee on Jan. 3, reports WBAL TV. The cash option is $169 million.

The biggest Mega Millions jackpot was in 2012 at $656 million.

One of the three winning tickets was sold in Maryland and was split between three lucky winners who dubbed themselves "The Three Amigos" since they wished to remain anonymous the station says.
