After one person in New York won $2 million in the Friday night Mega Millions drawing the jackpot was still up for grabs on Tuesday.

The jackpot had reached $109 million by that time with the cash option of $65.3 million and the drawing was scheduled for 11 p.m. EST Tuesday. Anyone who wants a chance at the jackpot has until an hour or two before the drawing to buy a ticket.

Cutoff times vary from state to state and the drawings are done in Atlanta so they're on eastern time. Anyone who wants to buy a ticket should check the local cutoff time in their state.

Tickets cost $2 each and the Megaplier costs an additional dollar. The Megaplier is randomly selected before the drawing and multiplies non-jackpot winnings by two, three, four or five. The Megaplier isn't available in every state so those who wish to play should also check whether or not it's available where they are.
