What happens if you win Mega Millions' $1.6B jackpot?

12,000 tickets sold per minute as Mega Millions’ jackpot hits $1.6 billion

The estimated cash option is about $905 million should a victor choose to take a one-time lump sum payment instead of annual payouts over 30 years, according to Mega Millions officials.

The winning numbers are 5, 28, 62, 65, 70 with a Mega Ball of 5. Three of the five largest jackpots in US history were split between multiple people, with the largest single prize going to a MA resident in 2017 who won a $758.7 million Powerball prize.

The jackpot has been growing since July 24, when 11 Santa Clara County, Calif., office workers won $543 million through an office pool.

You could be the lucky victor of the world's largest lottery jackpot after six winning numbers were drawn for Mega Millions' $1.6 billion jackpot.

If there's no victor Tuesday night, lottery officials said the estimated jackpot would jump again for Friday night's drawing, to $2 billion. The games are played in 44 states, Washington, D.C., and the US Virgin Islands. Although the chances of winning are slim, you know what they say: You can't win if you don't play.

Powerball has climbed since there was a victor in NY on August 11. Experts say sharing lottery dreams and cash with coworkers increases your chances of winning, but they also warn it could be risky. It's up to an estimated $620 million for Wednesday's drawing. Each ticket can hold up to 10 sets of numbers and his stack was over and inch thick.
