The Mega Millions jackpot has ballooned to a record $640 million.
The jackpot had stood at $540 million before it was increased Friday morning. The previous record jackpot was $390 million in 2007.
Mega Millions has drawn long lines of lottery players in stores in the 42 states plus Washington, D.C., and the Virgin Islands where tickets are sold. The world-record jackpot has also lured some residents to travel to other states to buy $1 tickets.
The odds of matching all five numbers and the Mega number are about 1 in 176 million.
The drawing for the $640 million will be held at 8 p.m. Friday, March 30, 2012.
