What could be a more fitting beginning to the year 2023 than to amass a fortune in the millions of dollars?
The Mega Millions jackpot will begin the year at $785 million since there was no winner for the last drawing of 2022.
This will make it the sixth greatest jackpot in the history of the lottery and the fourth highest jackpot in the history of Mega Millions.
On December 30, no one matched all six of the winning numbers, but the Mega Millions website reported.
There were over 2.7 million winning tickets in the drawing, with prizes ranging from $2.00 to $1 million.
According to a statement released by Mega Millions, "there is plenty of lottery excitement as we get started in the year 2023."
If no one is lucky enough to win the next drawing, it may be a sign that an enormous jackpot is on the horizon.
The most recent time this occurred was in July of this year.
According to Mega Millions, each of the three most recent times the jackpot surpassed $700 million, it finally reached $1 billion.
