Mega Millions Jackpot Hits $1.6B, Thanks To Worsening Odds

21 Octubre, 2018, 05:55 | Author: Arnold Perez

At least $1.6 billion, the largest jackpot in USA lottery history, will be up for grabs during the next Mega Millions draw after no winning tickets were sold for Friday night's draw, the lottery said on Saturday.

The next drawings are at 11 p.m Saturday for the Powerball and Tuesday night for Mega Millions.

N.C. officials said that in this past Tuesday's drawing, 93,726 tickets sold in North Carolina won a prize, ranging from $2 to $10,000. It would be the largest lottery prize in US history - and is bound to continue growing - and joins five other top 10 drawings in the last three years.

Officials did that by changing the potential number combinations, the Associated Press reported. which for Mega Millions increased the odds of winning the jackpot from one in 259 million to one in 302.5 million in October 2017. North Dakotans are on the opposite end of the spectrum, spending about $44 per year on the lottery, or the lowest average figure among residents of all 50 states.

If the next victor decides to take home a lump sum, they'd receive $905 million.

Ticket sales peak on Tuesdays and Fridays, the days of lottery drawings. Fifteen tickets matched five numbers for second-tier prizes of at least $1 million. The federal government takes 25% before the check is handed to the victor, and collects remaining taxes when due.

It costs $2 to play the game, but the odds of winning the jackpot aren't good.

Last October, Mega Millions introduced a $3 ticket option, which gives players two chances at the jackpot. But, if no one does, the Mega Millions jackpot will only hit a new record. The winning numbers for the approximately $430 million pot will be drawn Saturday night. They ramp up quickly throughout the day, Medenica says, and tend to peak between six and eight p.m., as people come home from work. More than 1.3 million scholarships, grants and awards have been funded.
