Updated: Monday 20th August 2018
UK jackpot hunters looking for a change to their usual weekly lottery game may be interested to hear the latest news from across the pond regarding the current US Mega Millions jackpot, which is due to be drawn tonight. After 21 rollovers, the estimated jackpot is now heading towards US$586 million and is on track to be the second largest Mega Millions jackpot in the game’s 17 year history – and one of the largest in the world.
Mega Millions is known throughout the world for generating the biggest single lottery jackpot of all time when it reached US$656 million on 30th March 2012. As ticket sales continue to increase in the lead up to tonight’s draw, which is already the fourth largest in world lottery history, lottery officials think the eventual jackpot may even exceed the current world record. Read more about the game by visiting the Mega Millions page.
The great news for UK lottery players is that they can now buy tickets for this potentially record-breaking draw, thanks to a ticket concierge service. This online service provides access to many of the world’s most popular lotteries, regardless of where the player lives, by purchasing the tickets on behalf of the player in the country where the draw takes place. You can access this service directly from Lottery.co.uk.
The lottery concierge service has agents across the world who are ideally positioned to buy physical lottery tickets for your game of choice. When you use the concierge service to buy a Mega Millions ticket, an agent in the US will buy a ticket on your behalf and then scan the ticket into your online account for you to view. A small fee to cover administrative costs is charged for this service but then no further costs or fees will apply.
As all tickets are stored electronically there is no risk of your ticket being lost or stolen and you ticket will even be automatically checked to see if you have won a prize. Should you be lucky enough to win, you will keep every penny of your winnings as, unlike some alternative services, no commission is taken by the concierge service or the agent.
The Mega Millions draw is due to take place in Atlanta, Georgia at 23.00 Eastern Time, which is 04.00 Wednesday UK time, and online tickets can be purchased via the lottery ticket concierge site until approximately midnight tonight. Better still, all first time users of the service will receive two tickets for the price of one which makes your chances of winning a share of this mammoth jackpot even better!
So for your chance to be part of the biggest worldwide lottery event this year, and play for a jackpot worth in excess of half a billion dollars, visit the Lottery Tickets page and click on Play Mega Millions now. Good luck!
