The winner of tonight’s Mega Millions could walk away with $433 million.

The Pennsylvania Lottery said Friday that strong ticket sales have boosted the jackpot to be the sixth largest jackpot in the game’s history.

The jackpot can be won as a $433 million annuity value or a $260 million cash prize.

After Tuesday’s drawing, the jackpot had rolled to a $422 million annuity value or $254.8 million cash.

The last Mega Millions jackpot hit was $142 million in Ohio on May 4.

Pennsylvania has sold two jackpot-winning Mega Millions tickets since joining the game in 2010. The largest was a $91.8 million cash-value prize claimed by a Virginia man in 2015.

In Pennsylvania, Mega Millions tickets are sold until 9:59 p.m. on drawing nights. A ticket costs $2.
