Where do the top Mega Millions winners call home as we approach the drawing on January 10, 2023?

The Mega Millions prize for the drawing that will take place on Tuesday, January 10 is an endeavour into uncharted territory.

The Mega Millions jackpot has only exceeded the $1 billion mark a total of three times prior to this drawing. The Powerball jackpot has already surpassed that dizzyingly high amount twice before.

And if Tuesday’s drawing is matched by just one lucky ticketholder, that person will claim the jackpot, which was estimated to be $1.1 billion as of Monday afternoon. This would make the prize the third largest in the history of the Mega Millions lottery, But it would only be the fifth largest in Powerball drawings were included.

The cash option for the drawing that will take place on Tuesday is now set at $568.7 million.

Who exactly is the lucky winner of such enormous jackpots? The question is, from whence did they originate? (Here’s a spoiler: none of them was from Ohio.)

The Jackpocket lottery blog has prepared a list of the top 10 Mega Millions wins. Here are those results. In the event that someone takes home the trophy on Tuesday, those who finished higher than second will fall.
