Second ever Highest Mega Millions Jackpot Tonight

It’s a massive lottery weekend in America with two fantastic jackpots to be won. Tonight, sees the second ever highest Mega Millions jackpot with $750m to be won. Then on Saturday, the Powerball jackpot is $640m.

The last draw was on Tuesday, but no ticket won the $625m top prize. Such was the desire to buy Mega Millions tickets, twice officials had to increase the estimated jackpot. It’s possible therefore that tonight’s jackpot could be even higher than $750m. The cash option for tonight’s top prize is $550.6m.

No Jackpot winner since September

Not since last September has the Mega Millions jackpot been won. The September 15 draw resulted in a $120m win for Adrian Tongson from Wisconsin. Not since 2019 has the jackpot been won in January, hopefully that will change this weekend. The record Mega Millions jackpot win is the staggering $1.537bn prize won in October 2018. That was won by a single player who bought their ticket in South Carolina. It took them five months to claim their astonishing windfall.

Players dreaming of success

What would you do if winning the $750m Mega Millions jackpot? That was the question residents in Acadiana in Louisiana, USA were asked. Gregory Brown said he’d use his winnings to start his own business. He’d take some time off though as also on his wish list is going on a cruise.

Donna Boullion showed the generous side of her nature. If that big win came along, she’d donate some of her winnings to church charities and the school where she works. Property was on the mind of Roland Shello. He’d use his winnings to buy himself his own home. It’d be his second purchase as he’d love to buy one for his mother first. Massive Powerball jackpot too.

Saturday’s Powerball draw has the fifth-largest jackpot in the history of the draw. It hasn’t reached this high for a couple of years.

It’s only the second time in history that both the Powerball and Mega Millions jackpots have both been over $600m.
