THE BRONX - The Mega Millions jackpot has reached an estimated $400 million.

The potential winnings would be the sixth largest lottery prize in U.S. history. It's also the third largest in the history of the Mega Millions game.

Someone from the Bronx bought a winning lotto ticket from Fares Gourmet Deli last month, so hundreds of locals went in today to buy their Mega tickets.

If a single player matches all six numbers, the winner could take home a $224 million lump-sum.
