The Mega Millions jackpot is nearing a half of a billion dollars. Tonight's winning Mega Millions jackpot is worth an estimated $400 million, or a $224 million onetime payout. The actual payout could be much higher by the time tonight's numbers are drawn.
According to a Chicago Tribune report on March 18, no one matched all six numbers in last Saturday’s drawing, however five Match 5 winning tickets were sold. The winning tickets were purchased in Arkansas, Florida, Virginia and two in Ohio.
In case you missed them, the winning numbers in last drawing were 7, 20, 40, 54 and 69, with a Mega Ball of 12.. The drawing multiplier was 3x.
According to a Michigan.gov lottery update on March 18, over 200,000 winning tickets were sold for the last drawing, including fifty three $500 winners and five $5,000 winners.
Tonight's Mega Millions $400 million jackpot will be the third highest jackpot in the Mega Millions history and the sixth largest lottery jackpot ever in the United States. If no one matches all six numbers tonight, Saturday's drawing may eclipse the $500 million mark and start to flirt with he largest jackpot in Mega Millions history. Back in March of 2012 the lottery hit a record jackpot of $656 million.
