The Mega Millions Lottery jackpot has reached its 4th ever largest total and its biggest lottery jackpot since a record $656,000,000 win in March 2012. The popular USA Lottery game will be even more popular with lottery players world-wide for the next draw which takes place on Tuesday at 11 pm Eastern Time.
It must be noted that the lottery jackpot total is not the cash value as happens 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 Tax which will further erode this massive figure. The EuroMillion Lottery game is tax-free in most countries that it is played in.
That will not stop millions of lottery players attempting to win tomorrows lottery jackpot on the Mega Millions game. The lottery has made a variety of changes in trying to boost jackpot levels, it seems to have worked.
It also created a new level of prizes and all of this without a price increase. The result has been a huge turn around for the lottery game that was rapidly being overshadowed by the Powerball lottery game.
Perhaps Camelot can take note of 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.
