At any given time, one lottery jackpot will be the biggest in the world, and that invariably means a lot of interest and overseas ticket sales. This week that accolade goes to the midweek Mega Millions, worth a staggering $120 million this evening after a string of rollovers.
The Mega Millions jackpot has been rolling since July 31st and now boasts a nine-figure lottery jackpot. The $120 million makes it the world’s biggest jackpot, so expect a lot of interest in tonight’s drawing.
In the last draw, Californians were the luckiest players, with three players from the state scooping the second tier prize. Six players in all won the Match 5 prize in Friday’s Mega Millions, becoming the biggest winners of the evening.
Right now it really is the battle of the rollovers in the US, as both the Mega Millions and Powerball offer big midweek rollover jackpots. While tonight’s Mega Millions is the biggest at $120 million, tomorrow’s Powerball isn’t far behind, with a jackpot worth a massive $110 million.
It means both Americans and world lottery players alike are spoiled for choice this week, but if you’re buying tickets for both the draws, then the Mega Millions plays this evening, so the countdown is now on.
