Will you call in sick with cash tomorrow? You'll have to play Mega Millions to have that chance.

The jackpot for tonight's Mega Millions drawing is worth an estimated $266-million.

No one has hit the big money since March 12. The jackpot has rolled over 14 times without a jackpot winner.

The odds of winning the jackpot are approximately one in 176 million.

But 1 in 40 will win at least something.

With nine different ways to win, a total of 1,610,768 tickets from coast to coast were winners in last Friday's drawing.

You can't come closer to winning the jackpot than the 12 tickets that matched the first five numbers and missed only the Mega Ball number. Mega Millions is currently played in 39 states, including New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

You can see the drawing tonight right before Eyewitness News at 11:00 on Channel 7.
