Are you going to play now?

There were apparently no matching numbers in last night's Mega Millions drawings, which has inflated its purse to $400 million, the AP reported.

Matching numbers for yesterday's drawing would have fetched $335 million.

One gambler lamented via Twitter about how close he came to winning.

A man interviewed by CBSNewYork said if he won he would use his winnings how many of us probably would.

"I will give to charity, some of the money for good causes — hospitals and schools –and then go to the sunshine, Florida, and relax for the rest of my life.”

According to Mega Millions, Tuesday's drawing for $400 million will be the third-highest jackpot in the game's history and the sixth-largest lotto jackpot ever offered in the US.

With a reported $224 million cash payout, how will you spend the money if you win?
