Bronx resident wins $1 million in Mega Million lottery jackpot

Signs display the jackpots for Mega Millions and Powerball lottery drawings at a newsstands in midtown Manhattan in New York U.S

The next Mega Millions drawing is Tuesday with the jackpot expected to exceed the USA record of $1.6 billion. That's right. Mega Millions "entered historic territory" Saturday after officials confirmed there were no winners for Friday's drawing. "But it's hard to fathom", Ms Gentry said.

The Powerball jackpot has jumped to $620 million after no winning tickets were sold. Fifteen tickets matched five numbers for second-tier prizes of at least $1 million.

Powerball, which held the record for the largest USA lottery prize of £1.213 billion ($1.586 bn) in 2016, will hold a separate draw on Saturday.

The Mega Millions lottery in the U.S. has reached an epic $1.6 billion after no one won the 41 billion prize on Friday night.

Tonya Jimenez, assistant manager at Beavers Market in Fort Collins, Colorado, said all three registers were going Saturday, a day after the store sold 220 tickets. United Kingdom players can win a separate prize by betting on the numbers. Several states allow online ticket purchases, but they prohibit out-of-state and foreign purchases, Elkin said. "We're doing a lot of explaining".

The 24 semi-weekly Mega Millions drawings have failed to produce a top victor since July 24, when an 11-member office pool in Santa Clara County, California, shared a $543 million jackpot.

The game, which was created in 2002, has seen changes over the years that have reduced the chances of winning, meaning bigger and bigger jackpots.

Both lotteries' jackpots have been increased recently by rule changes that have decreased the odds of winning. "I'd be more surprised if it doesn't get hit".

Mega Millions tickets are sold in 44 US states, the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands.
