The Mega Millions Lottery jackpot has reached its 4th biggest total and biggest lottery jackpot since a record $656,000,000 win in March 2012. As a result, the USA Lottery game will be even more popular with lottery players worldwide for the next draw, which takes place on Tuesday at 11 pm Eastern Time.
Mega Millions Lottery has a massive Jackpot!
It must be advised that the lottery jackpot total is not the cash value, as with EuroMillions. US Lottery games display an Annuity value and not a cash value. The current cash value of the Mega Millions Lottery is $184,000,000.
There is also the small detail of paying Federal and, in some cases, State taxes which will further erode this massive figure. But on the other hand, the EuroMillion Lottery game is tax-free in most countries where it is played in. That will not stop millions of lottery players from attempting to win tomorrow’s lottery jackpot on the Mega Millions game. The lottery has made a variety of changes in trying to boost jackpot levels. Finally, it seems to have worked.
It also created a new level of prizes, and all of this was without a price increase. The result has been a huge turnaround for the lottery game that was rapidly overshadowed by the Powerball lottery game. Perhaps Camelot can note this strategy as their relaunch of the UK National Lottery has been controversial, including being called greedy due to a doubling in the price of a lottery ticket.
