Mega Millions Jackpot Climbs over the Incredible Billion Mark

While there was considerable excitement surrounding last Friday’s Mega Millions draw, no player had correctly chosen the winning numbers 3, 8, 31, 35 and 44 and the Mega Ball 16. This means that the jackpot for the draw on Tuesday 26 March is estimated to be worth an incredible $1.1 billion.

There have now been 30 Mega Million drawings with no jackpot winner. The cash option for the next jackpot is just as impressive at $525.8 million, making it the fifth-biggest Mega Million prize ever. The Mega Millions lottery has exceeded the $1 billion mark six times and, on each occasion, there has been a huge amount of excitement around the draws.
