Monster 284 Million Mega Millions

At the witching hour this Friday night, some very lucky lotto player could find themselves gasping with a spine-chilling realisation that they have won the 284 million Dollar Mega Millions jackpot!

Mega Millions players craving to take home well over a quarter of a billion greenback that could change their lives forever, are in for a treat this Friday the 31st of October with the monster Mega Millions jackpot creeping to a spooktacular 284 million Dollars.
 
On Tuesday night, the Mega Millions rolled over for the nineteenth consecutive draw, making it the 10th biggest cash prize ever for the game.
 
No one matched all the winning Mega Millions numbers drawn. They were: 3, 50, 57, 58 and 60, with a Mega Ball 11. 
The Mega Millions online lotto results could take a few hours to inform the rest of us whether the jackpot has risen again, making November another feverish lotto month.
 
The unspoken question every Mega Millions lottery player keeps wondering about is whether we will be seeing another end of year Mega Millions record-breaking jackpot.  Players will remember the Mega Millions jackpot that took place on the 17th of December last year that skyrocketed to a staggering $648 million.
 
During the last six months, we have not seen the Mega Millions top the $300 million mark, which is when true Mega Millions jackpot fever kicks in.  With just one more Mega Millions draw standing in the way of this phenomenal event – all eyes are on this Friday’s 284 million Dollar Mega Millions jackpot.

Halloween might see this jackpot turn into a monster!

Biggest American jackpots

With the Mega Millions owning two of the top spots in the American lottery record books, it’s no wonder lottery enthusiasts come out of the shadows to make sure they too have a chance to grabbing this wicked lottery jackpot.

Powerball changes:
On the 15th of January, 2012, the Powerball lottery made a few changes which resulted in bigger jackpots and better odds of winning a prize.
 
The Powerball jackpot also doubled from $20 million to $40 million. The jackpot would increase by a minimum of $10 million if the jackpot was not won. Players who matched the second prize tier (match 5) prize tier increased from $200,000 to $1 million. 

Mega Millions changes:

The Mega Millions became even more mega on the 22nd of October when the minimum jackpot increased from $12 million to $15 million.  Every time the jackpot rolls the jackpot would increase by at least $5 million.  The second prize tier increased from $250,000 to $1 million for matching the five main numbers. The number format also got edited by increasing the number of white balls to 75 and Mega ball was decreased to just 15. It is the fundamental change that increased the odds of winning a prize rather substantially.

The Top Twenty American Jackpot List:

1. $656 million, Mega Millions, won on the 30th March 2012.  The jackpot was shared amongst three tickets.
