Mega Millions jackpot now $667M, third largest in United States history

Mega Millions prize climbs to $667M nation’s 3rd largest

The Illinois Lottery announced it's giving out 654 free tickets from 10 a.m.to 1 p.m. Tuesday at Schnuck's in Springfield.

Lottery officials have raised the estimated jackpot for Tuesday night's drawing to $667 million, making it the third-largest grand prize in US history.

The last time Mega Millions was this big, it was only worth $2 million more. It is possible to play from anywhere, even from Gibraltar, by purchasing official tickets at theLotter, the leading online lottery ticket messenger service. It's the second-largest in Mega Millions history. They may also set a record (or come close) for earnings on a single Powerball or Mega Millions ticket. "Everybody's hoping, and it only takes one to win, so we're having our fingers crossed", said Floyd Helvie, the assistant manager at Time Saver.

The jackpot will be the third largest lottery in USA history, trailing only two separate Powerball drawings that were worth $1.5 billion and $758 million.

Of course choosing your numbers or relying on the machine to pick them does not change your odds of winning the jackpot. which are 1 in 302,575,350.

So how can you play Powerball and Mega Millions from outside the United States? The two games make the combined possible winnings $999 million dollars. The prize must be claimed within one year at the lottery headquarters in Lansing. It's $345 million, or $199 million in cash.
