The history of the lottery, including Mega Millions
The record for the highest prize ever won in Mega Millions was broken in October 2018 in the state of South Carolina. A winner who wishes to remain nameless brought home $1.537 billion.
In the month of July of this past year, a Mega Millions jackpot worth a staggering $1.33 billion was won by a ticket purchased in the state of Illinois.
The prize for Tuesday’s Mega Millions drawing will be the third-largest in the game’s history and the fifth-largest in the annals of lottery play.
A Powerball ticket purchased in California claimed the jackpot of $2.04 billion, making it the highest prize ever won in a lottery drawing.
How likely is it that I will end up winning the jackpot?
One in every 306 million chances.
What kind of fees do you have to pay to play?
Each play costs $2 for a ticket, and adding a Megaplier will cost an additional $1.
A Mega Millions ticket with a value of one million dollars was sold at a deli in New Jersey.
The jackpot reaches $1.1 billion
The $1 million Mega Millions ticket that was won on Friday in New Jersey was purchased at a deli in Morris County. The drawing took place in New Jersey.
Officials from the New Jersey Lottery stated on Monday that the happy winner bought their ticket from the In & Out Deli located on Route 46 in Ledgewood. The ticket included five correct matches, but it was missing the Mega Ball.
Because no one in the United States was the lucky winner of the $940 million jackpot, the top reward for Tuesday’s drawing has been increased to an estimated $1.1 billion. That would make it the fifth greatest jackpot in the history of the United States lottery and the third largest in the game’s entire 20-year run.
Additionally, there were three third-prize tickets sold in the state of New Jersey. One of these was acquired through the use of the Jackpocket app, and it was then resold using the Megaplier option for an additional dollar. Its current value is $30,000. According to the officials from the lottery, tickets with a value of $10,000 were purchased at ShopRite on River Road in New Milford and at Quick Stop on Ringwood Avenue in Haskell.
The numbers 3, 20, 46, 59, and 63 were drawn as winners on Friday’s drawing. The number picked for the Mega Ball was 13, and the Megaplier was set to 3.
Since a prize of 502 million dollars was claimed on October 14, the jackpot has increased by 25 times. It was divided between two ticket holders, one of whom was located in Florida and the other in California.
There is a one in 302,575,350 chance that a ticket purchased for two dollars will match all of the winning numbers. Players have a chance of winning at least one million dollars with a ticket that matches five numbers but not the Mega Ball. This probability is one in 12,607,306.
The draws for the Mega Millions jackpot take place every Tuesday and Friday in 45 states, including Washington, District of Columbia, and the United States Virgin Islands.
