Mega Millions Jackpot Of $1.35 Billion Is The Game's 2nd-Highest Jackpot Ever

(CTN NEWS) – No winner of the lottery’s latest giant jackpot has increased Mega Millions Jackpot prize to $1.35 billion.

Late on Tuesday night, the following numbers were drawn: 7, 13, 14, 15, 18, and gold Mega Ball 9.

According to a statement released by M.M on early Wednesday, the new jackpot drawing on Friday night will mark another significant turning point for the game.

According to a statement from Pat McDonald, lead director of the M.M Consortium and director of the Ohio lottery, the Mega Millions jackpot has risen to $1.35 billion and is now the second-highest M.M jackpot in history.

According to M.M the $1.53 billion jackpot won in South Carolina in 2018 is the only Mega Millions jackpot greater than Friday’s reward.

The $2.04 billion Powerball jackpot won by a single ticket in California in November was the highest payout in the United States.

Only the winner of the estimated $1.35 billion jackpot in the following drawing who selects an annuity spread over 29 years would get a payout.

The anticipated $707.9 million cash reward for Friday night’s drawing is what almost all grand prize winners choose to accept.

Since the last time a player correctly matched all six numbers and won the jackpot, there have been 25 drawings spread out over three months.

Despite the game’s low likelihood of 1 in 302.6 million, participants keep buying tickets as the grand prize’s value increases.

Along with 45 states, Washington, D.C., and the US Virgin Islands, M.M is also played there.

Mega Millions: How to Play?

Tickets cost $2 each.  From the jackpot to $2, there are nine ways to win.

Players can choose six numbers from two separate pools of numbers: five from the white balls numbered 1-70 and one from the gold balls numbered 1-25.

  • 5 + 1 = Jackpot.
  • 5 + 0 = $1 million.
  • 4 + 1 = $10,000.
  • 4 + 0 = $500.
  • 3 + 1 = $200.
  • 3 + 0 = $10.
  • 2 + 1= $10.
  • 1 + 1 = $4.
  • 0 + 1 = $2

Matching all six winning numbers in a drawing wins you the jackpot.

Alternatively, you can choose Easy Pick or Quick Pick and have the numbers drawn for you automatically. There is a random number generator on the Mega Millions website if you can’t decide.
