Record $1.6 Billion Mega Millions Jackpot Up For Grabs Tonight

People line up at the Kwik Stop food store at 46th Avenue and Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood Fla. to buy Mega Millions lottery tickets Friday Oct. 19 2018

With a world record Mega Millions jackpot being drawn on Tuesday night, the Kentucky Lottery is celebrating by offering coupons for free tickets.

Combined, the Powerball and Mega Millions jackpots are now worth more than 2.2 billion dollars. Powerball, also owned and operated by the Multi-State Lottery Association, reached $620 million with no victor Saturday.

Wednesday's Powerball jackpot stands at $620 million. The next Mega Millions drawing is set for 11 p.m. October 23.

Here are some answers for someone holding that prized lottery ticket for what would be the largest lottery jackpot in USA history.

After sundry federal and state taxes and fees, the victor can expected to get about 60 per cent of the payout if he or she accepts it in one lumpsum, instead of the option of taking it in equal installments over 30 years.

The odds of winning Powerball are 1 in 292.2 million.

If the odds of winning either Mega Millions or Powerball don't seem huge enough, how about winning them both? He's convinced he's going to win.

Tickets sold for today's drawing are expected to cover 75 per cent of all possible number combinations, he said. That is up from 1 in 259 million a year ago; the change was made to generate larger prizes.

"It always amuses me that people from so many walks of life come in at $900 million and I guess $200 million was not enough for them", Schoen said.
