Have you fostered your Mega Millions dream?
Mega Millions began in August 1996 as the Big Game with six continental states participating. We joined the crowd on May 16, 2010 and now a total of 43 states and jurisdictions are involved. With jackpots starting at $12 million and prizes ranging from $2 to $250,000, this is the Mega-Game that fuels Mega-Dreams.
Winning mega-big is the name of the game
The largest recorded Mega Millions jackpot was $390 million with two winning tickets sold in Georgia and New Jersey. Since we joined the Mega Millions group, the two largest jackpots were on January 4th, 2011 at a whopping $380 million and $319 million on March 25th, 2011. We've had five large winners to date: two $1,000,000 winners, and three $250,000 winners! So far, total prizes paid out in Colorado are over $8,400,000.
Our state is a mega-winner, too! As of August 23, 2011, sales of Mega Millions have contributed $7.3 million to fund projects throughout beautiful Colorado. Check out some of the projects completed in your neighborhood!
