Tonight’s Mega Millions jackpot is worth an astonishing $363 million, the largest prize seen in the game since March 18th, 2014 and the sixth-largest jackpot in the history of the game. While no player has been able to match all five main numbers and the Mega Ball since March 8th of this year, there have still been some great windfalls distributed to ticket holders in recent weeks, including a syndicate from Rhode Island who matched all five main numbers and the Megaplier to win an incredible $5 million on June 17th.
Hitting the entire jackpot tonight would see you become the biggest single prize winner in the history of the game, surpassing Harold Diamond of New York. The retired school principal won $326 million in November 2014, and took a cash payout of $197.4 million before taxes.
You’d still be a long way off the biggest Mega Millions jackpot, however – in March 2012, a colossal $656 million was shared between ticket holders in Kansas, Illinois and Maryland. The prize also boasts the title of the second-largest lottery jackpot in history.
All it takes for a chance to win big on Mega Millions is a single ticket. By this time tomorrow, you could be preparing to add a nine-figure sum to your bank account if you choose to take part in the game and beat the odds.
You can play Mega Millions online from anywhere in the world or visit retailers in participating states and jurisdictions to buy physical tickets. Good luck!
