Sixth-Largest Mega Millions Prize in History Up for Grabs

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!

£21 Million Jackpot Win for UK Lotto Ticket Holder

Fans of UK Lotto saw Wednesday evening’s draw produce the fifth largest single ticket prize winner in the game’s history. The lucky player secured a jackpot worth over £21 million by matching all six main numbers.

The fortuitous player, who matched 2, 14, 19, 20, 29 and 38 to get their hands on the top prize, became the tenth winner of the UK Lotto jackpot since the start of the year. They also became the eighth ticket holder to claim an eight-figure prize since October 2015 when a number of changes were made to the game. These alterations have since made jackpots, on average, far larger, sparking excitement amongst many fans hoping to collect a cornucopia of cash.

This latest jackpot victory has displaced Iris Jeffery’s win from the top five largest prize amounts since UK Lotto witnessed its maiden draw in 1994. The housewife from Belfast secured an amazing £20.1 million in 2004, but must now settle for sixth place on the leaderboard. Unfortunately, the amount was not quite big enough to overhaul the win enjoyed by business partners Paul Maddison and Mark Gardiner from St Leonards-on-Sea, whose total of  £22.5 million in June 1995 narrowly clings on to fourth spot, not that that will matter to the game’s most recent winner who is now richer than Mike Tyson, Pamela Anderson and Lindsay Lohan combined.

This Saturday’s UK Lotto jackpot total has been reset and currently stands at an estimated £3.8 million, a prize that could change the life of any potential winner. To be in with a chance of winning this amazing sum, tickets can be purchased online or from any authorised retailer throughout the UK. Good luck!

Biggest Mega Millions Jackpot Since 2014 on Offer Tonight!

Tonight’s Mega Millions jackpot is worth $280 million, the highest value the top prize has reached since Harold Diamond of Wurstboro, New York picked up $326 million in the drawing on November 4th 2014. Since then, two big jackpots have been won in Illinois, with Jesus Davila Jr snapping up $265 million in January 2015 and John Williams and Neal Logue banking $262 million five months later, but tonight’s total has surpassed both amounts, and lottery fans across the 47 jurisdictions that sell Mega Millions tickets are excitedly awaiting tonight’s winning numbers to see if they will pick up a nine-figure fortune.

The top prize has not been won since March 8th, when Michael Burkett of Seattle, Washington claimed $157 million, and has now rolled over 26 times in the run up to tonight’s gigantic drawing. Burkett took the cash payout of $102.8 million and immediately bought himself an Alienware gaming PC, also revealing that he was looking to purchase a red Tesla – the luxury electric car with a minimum $70,000 price tag.

You could quit your job and spend your days lazing around swimming pools in tropical locations, or you might decide to start your own business without needing to beg the bank manager for financial backing.

Players choose five numbers between 1 and 75 and a Mega Ball between 1 and 15, matching all of them with those drawn at 11pm Eastern Time in Atlanta, Georgia to win. Prizes start at $1 for matching just the Mega Ball, with nine winning tiers in total, including the multimillion-dollar top award.

The largest jackpot ever won on Mega Millions is $656 million, shared by three ticket holders on March 30th 2012. Merle and Patricia Butler of Illinois, three teachers from Maryland and an anonymous player from Kansas banked $218.6 million each.

How Would You Spend Tonight’s $251 Million Mega Millions Jackpot?

With Tuesday’s draw unable to produce a winner, tonight’s Mega Millions jackpot has soared to an incredible $251 million, a total that may tempt a number of players to start wondering how this massive prize would change their lives.

There’s no doubt about it, $251 million is a lot of money and seeing such a large sum nestled in your bank account would almost certainly bring a warm, cheery beam to even the most crestfallen individual. One of the biggest dilemmas would be how to spend this vast fortune. First, an upgrade on your current home may be in order, with some wonderful properties to choose from including a mansion on Manhattan’s phenomenal Fifth Avenue ($80 million), or a cosy Colorado abode on the delightfully named Popcorn Lane ($50 million). If you were feeling particularly flush, a trio of islands off the coast of Panama that boast 50 beaches and 19 miles of stunning coastline could be yours for a mere $100 million.

You’ll obviously need a new set of wheels to park on your luxurious new driveway and where better to start than with a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO, which sold for over $38 million in 2014. If you fancy something a little more modern, a Bugatti Veyron could also be yours for $3.4 million, small change from such a monster lottery win. Moving inside, and you’ll need a prestigious piece of art to hang in your stylish home. Van Gogh’s original Vase with Fifteen Sunflowers could take pride of place in your front room for an estimated $82.2 million, or The Scream by Edvard Munch could watch over you in one of your many bedrooms for around $123 million, if the current owners were to agree to sell.

No multimillion-dollar mansion would be complete without a pet to keep you company, and with so much money you could really push the boat out. An ultra-fluffy Tibetan Mastiff would suit the style of any millionaire’s lifestyle, costing $1.6 million, while a Savannah cat could settle down on your sofa for $50,000. There are many more things this colossal fortune could bring to your life, it’s just up to you to decide what to spend it on.

So, if you’d like to start living the life of a millionaire lottery winner, securing tonight’s Mega Millions jackpot would be your first step. Tickets for this incredible prize are available online around the world or from any authorised retailer in participating states. Good luck!
