On Tuesday, the Mega Millions jackpot reached an astounding amount, making it the third largest jackpot prize in Mega Millions history. With a grand prize of over $900 million, lottery enthusiasts around the country were eagerly waiting to see if they would be the lucky winner.
The Mega Millions lottery is a popular game that is played in several states across the United States. Players pick six numbers, with the option of purchasing a Megaplier that can increase the value of non-jackpot prizes. The winning numbers are drawn twice a week, on Tuesday and Friday evenings.
Tuesday’s drawing saw the jackpot climb to a staggering $900 million, thanks to a rollover from the previous drawing. This was the first time the Mega Millions jackpot had surpassed the $800 million mark, making it the third largest jackpot prize in the game’s history.
Lottery officials reported a high level of ticket sales ahead of the drawing, as players were eager to get their hands on the massive grand prize. Many people were excited to join the ranks of previous Mega Millions winners, who have claimed prizes of over $1 billion in the past.
However, It is yet to be confirm that somebody won the said prize as the Lottery official has not announced the winner yet.
Although the odds of winning the Mega Millions jackpot are slim, with a 1 in 302,575,350 chance of matching all six numbers, the potential payoff is well worth the risk for many players. Lottery officials are reminding players to play responsibly and to only purchase tickets from authorized retailers.
Tuesday’s Mega Millions jackpot may have been the third largest in the game’s history, but it is certainly not the last time that the grand prize will reach such impressive heights. As the game continues to grow in popularity, we can expect to see even bigger jackpots in the future.
