Mega Millions accumulates historic “jackpot” of $1,350 million

Des Moines, Iowa. The jackpot or jackpot of the Mega Millions lottery rose again to 1,350 million dollars after the last drawing did not produce winners.

Tuesday’s winning combination was: 7, 13, 14, 15, 18, with the Gold Mega Ball 9.

The jackpot for Friday’s drawing will once again be historic for the game, Mega Millions said in a statement early Wednesday morning.

“At $1.35 billion, the Mega Millions jackpot is rising and making history as the second-highest in Mega Millions history,” Pat McDonald, Ohio Lottery Director and CEO of the Mega Millions Consortium, said in the note. .

Only one other Mega Millions drawing had a higher jackpot: One ticket won $1.53 billion in South Carolina in 2018, Mega Millions said.

The highest prize awarded by the lottery in the United States to date was the $2.04 billion won by a single Powerball ticket sold in California in November.

Joe Chahayed, owner of Joe’s Service Center business in California, received a $1 million bonus for selling the winning play.

The new jackpot will go to a winner who chooses to be paid via an annuity over 29 years. Almost all the winners opt for an immediate payment despite the fact that it is lower and that for Friday’s draw it is estimated at 707.9 million dollars.

Have passed 25 draws within three months of the last time a player drew the combination winner.

Despite the extremely low odds of winning – one in 302.6 million – players continue to buy tickets as the jackpot increases.

Mega Millions is played in 45 states, as well as Washington, DC, and the US Virgin Islands.
