The Mega Millions lottery in the US is offering one of the biggest prizes ever: a jackpot of $1.02 billion (about 1.01 billion euros). It is bigger than the $1.05 billion prize that five people in Michigan drew last year.
The largest prize ever won in Mega Millions is $1.537 billion. The Power Ball lottery in the US has the largest jackpot of all time. In 2018, it was awarded in South Carolina, at $1.586 billion. Despite not having a grand prize winner since the April 15 drawing, the jackpot continues to grow, as there have been 29 draws since then, and bi-weekly draws continue.
To participate, five numbers must be chosen between 1 and 70 and one Mega Ball number between 1 and 25. People can also have the numbers chosen at random. If all six numbers match, you win the jackpot.Lottery tickets cost $2. The next drawing in the Mega Millions lottery is Friday.
