We recently told you that the Mega Millions lottery has had a bit of a makeover in the hopes that it will produce some of the biggest lottery jackpots yet, hopefully to rival those of the US Powerball lottery, which often produces jackpot prizes over and above $400 million.

Well this Friday the Mega Millions lottery is doing just that as, on Friday 13th December, it is offering a huge jackpot of $400 million, which, if won by one single ticket holder, will be the second largest Mega Millions prize in the history of the American lottery.

To get to its current size the lottery jackpot has gone through 20 draws without being won, and was worth $344 million in the last draw on Tuesday evening, however not one of the players across the 43 US States which play the Mega Millions lottery could match the main numbers 5, 12, 22, 41 and 65 and the Mega Ball 13 to take home the jackpot total which was worth $184 in cash.

However, the lottery jackpot on Friday night is worth $216 as a cash pay-out or the winner could choose to take the amount as an annuity. While the Friday 13th jackpot is a massive amount in Mega Millions terms, it is still a world away from the largest ever Mega Millions jackpot which was won in March 2012, when a total amount of $656 million was won by one single ticket holder.

So if the jackpot isn’t won on Friday 13th, don’t see it as unlucky, it could be a sign that the Mega Millions lottery jackpot is climbing up again! Don’t hesitate and purchase your Mega Millions lottery tickets online at Lottery24.com.
