Mega Millions – the lottery with the world record for the largest jackpot win in history. And the jackpot is on a roll, having been so since October 1st, 2013! Everyone is anticipating the results for today’s draw because the last time there was a massive jackpot rollover streak such as this the lottery known for its mega winnings hit an all-time record of $656 million!
The jackpot on offer for this evening’s draw is the fourth largest ever recorded, but will the Mega Millions roll over again into record-breaking territory? Mega Millions’ rival jackpot, the US Powerball also experienced a rollover on Saturday night, resulting in a jackpot of $122 million. It’s clear who has risen to the status of mega lottery. Mega Millions underwent changes in October that decreased the odds of winning the jackpot (from 1 in 176 million to 1 in 259 million) but in turn increased the chances of secondary prize winnings - and this could push the jackpot past the $400 million mark tonight, while heading towards a record-breaker for Friday’s draw.
The Mega Millions and Powerball lotteries have been head to head for the title of biggest lottery ever won. Currently Mega Millions has that honour, despite the more difficult odds of winning the jackpot compared with Powerball. This could be attributed to the media presence of Mega Millions and big city buying habits of lottery players, because it was offered in the biggest states long before Powerball – states including New York, California, Texas, Michigan, Illinois and Ohio.
But a little timed support might go a long way when considering a jackpot win – statistics show that the more people play between drawings, the more likely the jackpot will be hit. But if those ticket buyers spread their playtime out, there’s more likelihood that the jackpot will roll over.
