Mega Millions: Mega Millions’ winning numbers reveal $830 Million Jackpot

U.S. Lottery ticket purchasers vying Tuesday night for fourth-largest lottery prize in U.S. History as Mega Millions officials drawn for an $830million jackpot.

The winning numbers were 7-29-60-63-66, with the Mega Ball being 15.

The drawing is the biggest in more than a year, as the lack of a winner since April 15 has pushed the top prize into historic proportions.
The $830million prize would be the third highest ever awarded in U.S. Lotteries if it was won on Tuesday. lotteries.

The Oct. 23, 2018, Mega Millions game had one winner get $1. 537 Billion, which was the most expensive ticket ever sold in U.S. History. The biggest prize was the Jan. 13, 2016, Powerball game in which the $1. 586 million jackpot was divided among three tickets.

In the only other prize to top the “billion with a b” threshold, a ticket sold in Michigan for the Jan. 22, 2021, Mega Millions drawing was worth $1. 05 billion.

If the Mega Millions winner Tuesday chose to make a one-time payment, like most other lottery winners, then the million prize of Tuesday’s mega million would amount to millions. The larger, advertised amount is what the other option — a 29-year annuity — would be worth over its lifetime.

Federal taxes would quickly take almost 40% of that amount, with state taxes a possibility on top of that.

The $2 Mega Millions tickets are sold in 45 states, along with the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The odds of a winning Mega Millions ticket are 1 in 302.5 million.
