Fourth-largest jackpot in Mega Millions history up for grabs

29 March, 2018, 02:18 | Author: Jason Torres
  • The Mega Millions jackpot is up to $458 million

No one across the country hit the $458 million jackpot, pushing the top prize for Friday's drawing to $502 million - the 10th largest in USA lottery history.

If one ticket matches all six numbers in Friday's drawing, the victor will have a choice: either take the full $502 million jackpot in 30 annual payments, or choose a one-time cash option of approximately $301.5 million before taxes.

Tuesday's winning numbers were 7, 25, 43, 56 and 59.

Both Mega Millions and Powerball - which now has a jackpot of $40 million after a New Hampshire woman claimed $560 million earlier this year - have seen hefty grand prizes lately, largely thanks to rule changes that made it more hard to win the jackpot.

Drawings are Tuesday and Friday nights at 10 p.m.

Heavily armed police also searched Lakdim's apartment in Carcassonne to search for clues as to his motives and weapon source. French President Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Theresa May are among those who sent messages of condolence.

The overall odds of winning the jackpot are one in 302,575,350.

"Large jackpots like this one capture everyone's attention, and it would be great to see the roll go on for a while longer". They were sold in IL and New Jersey.

Each Mega Millions ticket costs two dollars to purchase. Friday's jackpot could rank as the fourth-highest in the history of Mega Millions.

The last time was in July 2016 when a single ticket sold in IN - in Hamilton County - won a $536 million prize. One past jackpot victor in PA waited 100 days to claim. The cash payout option for Friday's jackpot is $301 million. Winners have 180 days from the applicable drawing to claim their prize.
