Did anyone win one of the largest US Mega-Millions drawing lottery jackpot?


The 26 July Mega Millions jackpot has crossed $1 billion. According to lottery officials, the Mega million lottery prize in the July 26 drawing will be a projected $1.02 billion. However, it is fairly certain to grow as more and more tickets are bought as that drawing date draws near. Fourth largest lottery jackpot prize in U.S

argest US Mega-Millions drawing lottery jackpot

The cash option for that pot of gold would be $602.5 million. This has been the largest Mega Millions Lottery ever.

The winning numbers from Tuesday’s drawing were: 29, 63, 66, 7, 60 and a “Mega Ball” of 15. On every mind, there was only one question: “Did anyone win the Mega Millions Drawing’?

Unfortunately, there were no winners for the Tuesday Night drawings, which had an $830 million jackpot. It would have been the United States’ fourth-largest lottery jackpot prize of all time and the third-largest Mega Millions in history.

“It takes a tremendous span of time for this jackpot to get up this high, and we’re so excited,” said Maria Kilbane, who is a spokesperson for Mega Millions.

Twenty-nine consecutive draws have been drawn without a single jackpot winner. No one has matched the Mega Millions game’s six numbers since April 15, 2022.

The biggest-ever lottery prize payday was a whopping $1.58 billion Powerball jackpot in 2016.  

The crowds of anxious people to find out if there were any lucky winners resulted in “extraordinary” traffic to the Mega Millions website, Maria Kilbane said in a statement. Several attempts to reach the site resulted in error messages. However, the people were left unsatisfied as it was determined that there weren’t any grand prize winners.

Kilbane says 62 million attempts to reach the Mega Millions website over a 24-hour span.

Up to this month in this year, we have seen three large jackpot winners: a $426 million pot of gold in California in January, a $128 million ticket cashed in New York in March and a $110 million jackpot prize in Minnesota in April, according to Mega Millions of officials.

The odds of winning the jackpot are exceedingly small — about 1 in 302.5 million. You have much better odds of getting a smaller payoff, but even that is one in 12.6 million.

How much is the payout after taxes?

Even winning the lottery, you won’t get $830 million. That’s the amount for winners who take the allowance option and pay over 30 yearly payments. But winners classically opt for cash, which for this drawing would pay out a measly amount of $488 million compared to the actual $830 million.

Then come the federal taxes, which she said would leave the winners with $351 million. State taxes could also cut into that amount depending on the state. Still a fortune, however, a smaller one.

Mega Millions is played in 45 states all over the United States of America. The game is organized and coordinated by state lotteries.
