On Friday the 13th, Mega Millions will draw for a $400 million jackpot, the game's second largest prize ever. 

The jackpot's cash option is $216.4 million before taxes.

"Lottery players are known to have a lot of superstitions, but if there's a chance to win a $400 million jackpot on Friday the 13th, nobody will be spending the day hiding under their covers," said David Barden, the New Mexico Lottery's interim chief executive officer.

The largest jackpot in Mega Millions' 17-year history was $656 million, won on March 30, 2012.
