Mega Millions, the tremendous vacant jackpot

The draw to be held tonight is even cabalistic for those who bet. That the second largest jackpot in the history of the lottery is played on the 13th is particular, since this number is considered by many to be “good luck”, and to others, it is “bad luck”.

If it is vacated, it could become the largest in the history of this lottery. The largest jackpot to date was drawn on October 23, 2018, and had an anonymous winner from South Carolina.

The winner of that prize of 1,537 million dollars preferred to remain anonymous, since the rules of the Lottery of that State allow the winners not to reveal their identity. The winning numbers on that occasion were 05, 28, 62, 65, 70 and the Mega Ball 5.
