COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) -- Tonight, someone in America could be $636 million richer. That's the total for the Mega Millions drawing scheduled for 11:00 p.m. 

The total was $586 million going into Tuesday, but lottery ticket sales have pushed the amount higher.

While high, tonight's Mega Millions total doesn't top the record-setter of $656 million. Twelve people won that jackpot last year.  

If the winner of tonight's drawing takes the cash option, that amount totals $341 million. 

Lottery officials say the odds of getting all six numbers for this drawing is about 1 in 259,000,000.
