Mega Millions jackpot jumps over $1 billion


After no one matched all six numbers on Tuesday night to claim the top prize, the enormous Mega Millions lottery jackpot increased to $1.02 billion

The new anticipated jackpot will rank as the fourth-largest lottery prize in the country

Since April 15, nobody has matched all six of the game's chosen numbers, which has resulted in the jackpot growing significantly. That's 29 lotteries in a row without a significant winner

The numbers for Tuesday were 07-29-60-63-66; the Mega Ball was 15

For winners who select the annuity option, which is paid out annually over 30 years, the prize is worth $1.02 billion

The majority of winners choose the cash option, which for the upcoming drawing on Friday night is anticipated to be $602.5 million

Along with 45 states, Washington, D.C., and the US Virgin Islands, Mega Millions is also played there. State lotteries are in charge of organising the game

One in 302.5 million people have a chance of winning the jackpot
