Biggest Jackpot Ever!
$640 MILLION BIG ONES!
Since Tuesday's jackpot didn't produce a winner, the new estimated jackpot for Friday, March 30th, is projected to be $640 million - the largest Lottery jackpot in United States' history! And, if sales continue like they've been, it's quite possible that the actual jackpot amount will be much bigger than that! We're conservative when it comes to estimating jackpots and often the jackpot ends up to be higher than originally stated after total ticket sales are accounted for.
You can't win if you don't play.
Everyone knows the odds of winning Mega Millions are daunting... but for one dollar (or two if you play the Megaplier option) you can dream - and dream BIG! Just think... Tuesday's drawing resulted in three 1 million dollar winners: 1 in Colorado, 1 in N. Carolina, and another in West Virginia. The drawing also chose 43 lucky players who matched the first five numbers awarding them $250,000: 9 from California, 2 from Illinois, 2 from Maryland, 2 from Michigan, 1 from Missouri, 1 from Montana, 2 from New Jersey, 10 from New York, 1 from North Carolina, 2 from Ohio, 2 from Pennsylvania, 1 from S. Carolina, 2 from Texas, 1 from Vermont, 1 from Virginia, 3 from Washington, 1 from Washington D.C., and 1 from West Virginia.
The lump sum cash value for this Friday's drawing is $462 million. What would you do with that kind of cash?
Don't wait until the last minute to purchase your Mega Millions tickets. With this jackpot being the largest in Mega Millions history, there's no doubt that everyone will want to get in on the action. Sales will remain open Friday until approximately 7:30 p.m.- so don't get caught in any lines!
The current jackpot run started off at $12 million on January 27th and has continued to grow without a winner for two months bringing it up to $640,000,000 - the biggest jackpot in U.S. history.
The three largest Colorado winners (of $1 million) were won in August 2010, March 2011, and in the last drawing on March 27th!
From July 1, 2010 through June 30, 2011, Mega Millions has contributed $8.2 million supporting our state's parks, recreation and open space areas, conservation education and wildlife projects! In the same time frame, over $12.5 million was paid out in prizes resulting from sales in Colorado!
