After many weeks that the Mega Millions jackpot had been rolling over, finally the jackpot of USD 1.58 billion was drawn for a single winner. The ticket purchased by the lucky winner at Neptune Beach, Florida, had the drawn numbers: 13, 19, 20, 32, 33, and 14.
With two drawing days per week, Tuesday and Friday at 11:00 pm ET, Mega Millions is one of the most popular lotteries in the United States. Its history of millionaire prizes and its nine ways to win, from USD 2 to the top prize, attract the public looking to try their luck and change their lives.
According to the official Mega Millions website, the previous prize had been drawn on April 18, 2023, but the total amount was much lower than the USD 1.58 billion jackpot won by the lucky winner on August 8, 2023.
Although the criteria for claiming the prize may vary from state to state in the United States, the lucky winners of its top prizes have the choice between receiving the amount in cash or in annual payments. The second option offers the winner the possibility of keeping their wealth protected from inflation.
The annual payment, according to the official website, is composed of an immediate payment followed by 29 annual payments, each one being 5% higher than the previous one. The cash payout option provides the winner the equivalent of the cash in the draw pot.
On July 19, 2023, another jackpot was won in the equally popular Powerball. After rolling over countless times, its gigantic USD 1.08 billion jackpot went out to one lucky winner, whose ticket was purchased in California.
