Maga millions jackpot climbs to $1.25 billion after no one hits the top prize
The Mega Millions jackpot has climbed to an estimated $1.25 billion after no one matched all six numbers in the drawing on Tuesday, August 2, 2023.
The winning numbers were 8, 24, 30, 45, 61, and the Mega Ball was 12.
The next drawing will be held on Friday, August 5, 2023.
The jackpot will be paid out as an annuity over 30 years, or the winner can choose to take a lump sum payment of $625.3 million.
The current jackpot is the fourth-largest in Mega Millions history.
The largest jackpot was $1.58 billion, which was won by a ticket sold in Florida in October 2022.
The odds of winning the Mega Millions jackpot are 1 in 302.6 million.
So, even though the jackpot is astronomically large, the chances of winning are still very slim.
But hey, you never know your luck! So if you're feeling lucky, go ahead and buy a ticket.
You might just be the next multi-millionaire.
