What happens if you win Mega Millions’ $970M jackpot?

Still, with winnings from the largest-ever $970 million Mega Millions jackpot, they might have a lot left over.

Friday's Mega Millions, along with Wednesday's Powerball jackpot, which stands at $345 million, are worth more than a cool billion dollars. An office pool of 11 co-workers in California shared $543 million, the largest prize ever won on a single ticket in the game. The lottery officials who run Mega Millions tweaked the rules and odds of the game last October to make jackpots pay out less frequently, spurring their monster growth.

Do not respond the emails, officials say. That honor goes to a 2016 Powerball jackpot, which clocked in at $1.586 billion (although it was shared by three winners).

There was no victor in Tuesday's Mega Millions lottery drawing. The next drawing is Friday.

The top prize keeps growing because no one has won the jackpot since July 24. It is scheduled for 10 p.m.

The odds of winning the jackpot aren't good, at one in 302.5 million. And if you're reading this story, you'll probably buy a ticket so here are five things to think about if the second largest jackpot in USA history has given you lottery fever.

He anticipated the possibility that the grand prize would increase again before the next drawing and, boy, was he right. Each game has two types of tickets, one costing $2 and the other $3.

Since Mega Millions modified the formula, players now pick five numbers from 1 to 70 and a Mega number of 1 to 25.

The prize is so big that Kurland said he will probably buy a ticket himself.
