For the fourth time in its history, the Mega Millions Jackpot has grown to over 500 Million dollars!

The last drawing on Tuesday night didn't match any tickets so the jackpot has grown from $458 Million dollars to over $500 Million dollars!

According to a press release from Mega Millions officials, the last time the jackpot went over $500 million dollars was back in July 2016.

"It’s just the fourth time in Mega Millions history that the jackpot has surged past $500 million; the last time was in July 2016 when a single ticket in Indiana won a $536 million prize. And between America’s two big jackpot games Powerball and Mega Millions, Friday’s $502 million jackpot is the tenth largest prize ever offered in the United States. Powerball holds the world record with a $1.586 billion jackpot won on January 13, 2016; the Mega Millions record is $656 million won on March 30, 2012 – exactly six years ago this Friday."

The next drawing for the Mega Millions will be held on Friday, March 30th, 2018.
