One lucky person could turn into nearly a quarter-billionaire this weekend.

With no Mega Millions winner on Friday night, the next drawing is Tuesday night for a whopping $229 million jackpot.

Mega Millions is played in 44 states as well as Washington, D.C., and the US Virgin Islands. A ticket costs $2 -- and a winner beats the odds of 1 in 302 million.

Tickets must be purchased by 10 p.m. Tuesday night, and the drawing can be watched live on Fox 4 in Southwest Florida at 10:59 p.m.

If you miss out on the Mega Millions jackpot, Wednesday night's PowerBall jackpot is up to $181 million.
