9. $380 million (Mega Millions) -- Won in January 2011 by two tickets purchased in Idaho and Washington.

Tonight's Mega Millions drawing is the third largest jackpot in the game's history at an estimated $400 million.

The estimated $400 million jackpot amounts to a lump-sum cash total of $224 million before taxes.  

 Friday's $353 million jackpot drawing did have 5 tickets matching the numbers but not the Mega ball.

Three of those tickets played the Megaplier and are worth $3 million each.

The other two matching tickets are worth $1 million.

Tickets are sold in 42 states for $1 dollar with the option of adding the Megaplier for another $1 to multiply your prize winning. 

The drawing will be held at 11pm tonight.
