Il Mega Millions lottery is still looking for a winner to claim the second-largest grand prize in the game’s history.
The pot has grown to “rarified territory,” with the jackpot reaching an estimated $ 850 million after no winner was declared during Friday’s drawing.
Lottery winners can either opt for a cash option — a one-time, lump-sum payment — or an annuity paid out over the course of about 30 anni.
The cash option is estimated at about $ 628.2 milioni.
Not only does this mark the second-largest prize in the game’s history, but it’s also the third-largest prize in American lottery history.
Ad oggi, the world-record Powerball jackpot is still $ 1.586 miliardi, which was claimed in January 2016.
Nel frattempo, the Mega Millions record sits at $ 1.537 miliardi, which was claimed two years later in October of 2018.
The numbers that were drawn Friday night were 3, 11, 12, 38 e 43 as well as the gold Mega Ball of 15.
Although no one hit the big jackpot, there were more than 4.6 million winning tickets at all prize levels, hanno detto i funzionari. Eight tickets even matched the five white balls and won the game’s second prize of $ 1 milioni.
