No Mega Millions victor, but $1M ticket sold in Arizona over weekend

No Mega Millions victor, but $1M ticket sold in Arizona over weekend

Mega Millions is already the largest jackpot in USA history and Powerball is in the top five. The player has 180 days to turn the ticket in for the payout.

If a player hits all six numbers to win the jackpot, they can opt for an immediate cash payment of $904m or receive the $1.6bn prize over 29 years. Fifteen tickets matched five numbers for second-tier prizes of at least $1 million. The drawing is on Tuesday night in the United States. "I think when these things are separated by years, as they seem to be, they take on a life of their own".

A 2016 Powerball jackpot that was worth $1.58 billion is the current record-holder for largest jackpot in history. That could also land you a historic tax bill if you win, though don't expect a lot of sympathy. The next Powerball drawing is Wednesday, Oct. 24, and it's worth $620 million with a $354.3 million cash value.

Lottery players buy Mega Millions lottery tickets in NY.

On Monday, they kept the projected jackpot at $1.6 billion but will re-examine the numbers Tuesday to decide if it should go up. Some states don't even sell lottery tickets, and the rest have deadlines for purchasing a ticket. Players have to match five numbers for the million dollar prize.

With the odds of winning at 1 in 302 million for a single ticket, experts say you're more likely to be elected President of the United States, or canonised as a saint. Since 2010, that honour goes to the number 2, with 92 hits, followed by the numbers 20, 11, 31 and 17. It only missed the Mega Ball.

Powerball has climbed since there was a victor in NY on August 11.

In California, $267 million has been collected in Mega Millions sales over the past 25 rolls. Payment speed also varies by state, but a week or two is common. The games are played in 44 states, Washington, D.C., and the US Virgin Islands. The U.S. population is about 326 million.

The $1.6 billion jackpot, a jaw-dropping amount to the average person who can afford a $2 ticket, is still less than two weeks of profit for Apple Inc.
