(WXIA) -- Someone may soon become $586 million richer.

The Mega Millions jackpot was raised Monday morning from $550 million to $586 million.

The number continues to climb after no one matched all the winning numbers in last Friday's drawing. The jackpot has been steadily growing since Oct. 4.

The next Mega Millions drawing will be Tuesday.

The Georgia Lottery said this is the second largest jackpot in Mega Millions history. The winner can choose between annuity payments or a lump sum of about $316 million after taxes.
