You read that correctly: nearly three-quarters of a billion dollars in cash!Mega Millions has now gone an unprecedented 35 drawings without a jackpot winner — the most rollovers in the game’s history. The current jackpot run-up started on Sept. 18 as a $20 million grand prize.The $850 million annuity jackpot as well as the $628.2 million cash value are both ranked 3rd-largest ever in the United States (see full list below).Lottery players dreaming what all the cash will look like in their bank account after federal and state taxes are taken out can see an after-tax analysis of the current Mega Millions jackpot by visiting USA Mega’s Jackpot Analysis page. The Jackpot Analysis page has recently been improved to also include the additional taxes that will be due after the initial withholdings, and will even allow players to see the taxes due under different filing statuses.The rush of ticket sales over the next few days likely will propel the jackpot to an even higher amount before the drawing takes place Tuesday. Lottery Post and USA Mega will update the jackpot tallies displayed if such an increase occurs.Players looking for a nearby lottery retailer — or that out-of-the-way retailer with a smaller line — are encouraged to use Lottery Places, the only app for iOS, Android, and Windows that can locate the nearest lottery retailers in every jurisdiction that sells Powerball and Mega Millions. The helpful app can locate lottery stores in the United States, the United Kingdom, Mexico, much of Canada, and the Caribbean.Some states offer direct online sales too.  Michigan residents can bypass the store completely and buy Mega Millions tickets and Powerball tickets online.  Texas residents can buy Mega Millions tickets and Powerball tickets online too.  Oregon residents have options to buy Mega Millions tickets and Powerball tickets online as well.  Note that some of these links will only work properly for residents of the states mentioned.Players outside the USA can use a reputable butler service, which provides scanned copies of the purchased lottery tickets securely held on behalf of the customer. In the past, the lottery ticket service was used by people out side the USA to win big jackpots in Oregon and Florida.In Friday night’s Mega Millions drawing, there was no jackpot winner, but 8 lucky players matched the first 5 numbers for a $1,000,000 prize: 1 from California, 1 from Florida, 1 from Michigan, 2 from New Jersey, 1 from New York, 1 from Ohio, and 1 from Wisconsin.Unfortunately, none of the second-prize winners purchased their ticket with the Megaplier option for an extra $1 per play.  If they had, their prize would have been increased to a whopping $4 million, because the Megaplier number drawn was 4.The lucky California second-prize winner will be awarded an extra-sweet $1,225,193. By law, California awards all lottery prizes on a pari-mutuel basis, meaning the prizes will change each drawing based on the number of tickets sold and the number of tickets that won at each prize level. In this drawing the prize formula paid off nicely because there was just one second-prize winner in the state.The Megaplier option is not available in California, because the fixed nature of the prize increase offered with the Megaplier is not compatible with California’s pari-mutuel payouts.Also, a total of 142 tickets matched four of the first five numbers plus the Mega Ball to win a $10,000 prize. Of those tickets, 22 were purchased with the Megaplier option, increasing the prize to $40,000, and 27 were sold in California, where the prize awarded this drawing is $6,286.The Mega Millions winning numbers for Friday, Jan. 15, 2021, were 3, 11, 12, 38, and 43, with Mega Ball number 15. The Megaplier number was 4.Following the Friday drawing, the Mega Millions annuity jackpot estimate was raised $100 million from its previous amount of $850 million. The cash value was raised by $77.6 million from its previous amount of $550.6 million.Mega Millions is currently offered for sale in 45 states, plus Washington, D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Drawings are Tuesdays and Fridays at 11:00 pm Eastern Time. Tickets cost $2 each.The Mega Millions winning numbers are published at USA Mega (www.usamega.com) minutes after the drawing takes place.Top 25 United States lottery jackpots of all timeThe upcoming

That would mean that a rollover was more than twice as likely as a winner.It would also mean that the actual cash jackpot increased by about $75 million, which is well shy of the $98 million cash increase based on the advertised jackpots of 625 and 750. In turn, that would mean that the advertised jackpot couldn’t have increased from 625 to 750, so either that jump started well past 625 (without a late bump in the advertised amount or they came up well short of the 750 they advertised.Sales are obviously much higher than they were a few drawings back, but I don’t think it’s exactly a frenzy.Chasing $ Millions.White Shores- CaliforniaUnited StatesMember #136473December 12, 20126494 PostsOffline📄January 16, 2021, 1:34 pmThat is far too much money for one person, or one family.
