    was last hit on Nov. 29, 2014, and the new jackpot has been growing for 19 consecutive weeks without a top prize winner.
    The $380 million, if won by one ticket-holder, would be paid over 30 years, or the winner could choose to take the cash option, which is an estimated $256.8 million, in a lump sum.

    The odds of winning the grand prize are 1 in 175 million.

    I don't buy lottery tickets regularly, but when the prize gets huge I'll throw 5 bucks at it just for shits and giggles. :D
