MegaMillions Jackpot is Mega Massive
Updated: Monday 20th August 2018
The MegaMillions lottery game is world-famous for its massive jackpots (the minimum jackpot is worth a hefty $12 million), but the MegaMillions jackpot for the next draw is worth a whopping $330 million, thanks to a series of rollovers. The next MegaMillions draw takes place on Tuesday 4 January, and for any UK lottery fan who wants to have a go at landing this particular jackpot you can do so by purchasing MegaMillions lottery tickets online. Your tickets will have just as much chance of winning as any others, but you won’t need to leave your home – let alone visit the USA – to get involved!
If the $330,000,000 jackpot isn’t won on Tuesday then the next draw – which will boast an even bigger jackpot prize – will take place on Friday 7 January, and as the top prize increases so will the hope that someone finally wins it!
For those who haven’t played the MegaMillions game before, we can tell you that you need to select 5 main numbers from the range 1 to 56 and 1 ‘Mega Ball’ number from the range 1 to 46. It is necessary to match all 6 of your selections to win the jackpot, and the odds of you doing this are 1 in 175,711,536. Fortunately, there are 9 prize levels in total (the top one being the jackpot itself), and the odds of winning any prize at all are 1 in 40.
To put the current $330 million MegaMillions jackpot into perspective, the biggest MegaMillions jackpot of all time was worth $390 million, and that was won on 6 March, 2007, setting a new world record for the biggest lottery win of all time. The current jackpot is therefore in very good company, and anyone who manages to win it outright will be set for life no matter how ambitious they are.
