And based on past multi-state lottery jackpots, that estimate may get a lot bigger by the time the drawing kicks off Friday night.To get to this size, the jackpot has been growing since it started on Sept. 18 as a $20 million prize — now a record 36 consecutive drawings without a winner.Friday’s $970 million Mega Millions jackpot is the 2nd-largest in the game’s history, and the 3rd-largest lottery jackpot in world history. The largest lottery jackpot ever awarded was on January 13, 2016, when three tickets from California, Florida, and Tennessee shared a $1.6 billion Powerball jackpot. Mega Millions had its largest-ever jackpot — valued at $1.537 billion — awarded to a single winning ticket claimed anonymously in South Carolina.The lump-sum cash value of $716.3 million is also the 3rd-largest on the all-time lottery jackpot cash value rankings (see full list below).The USA’s other big multi-state game, Powerball, is simultaneously achieving historic jackpot levels with its $730 million jackpot. Together, Powerball and Mega Millions offer an astonishing $1.7 billion in combined jackpots.Lottery players dreaming what all the cash will look like in their bank account after federal and state taxes are taken out can see an after-tax analysis of the current Mega Millions jackpot by visiting USA Mega’s Mega Millions Jackpot Analysis page. The Jackpot Analysis page has recently been improved to also include the additional taxes that will be due after the initial withholdings, and will even allow players to see the taxes due under different filing statuses.The rush of ticket sales over the next few days likely will propel the jackpot to an even higher amount before the drawing takes place Friday. Lottery Post and USA Mega will update the jackpot tallies displayed if such an increase occurs.The quickest way to find the winning numbers after the drawing Friday will be by visiting USA Mega (www.usamega.com) at 11:00 pm Eastern Time (8:00 pm Pacific), when the winning numbers will be published live as they are drawn.Players looking for the nearest official lottery retailer — or maybe just a different store without such a long line — are urged to use the free Lottery Places app available for iOS, Android, and Windows. The app can find lottery stores in every Mega Millions state and can search across state lines — something even official state lotteries can’t do.Some states offer direct online sales too.  Michigan residents can bypass the store completely and buy Mega Millions tickets and Powerball tickets online.  Texas residents can buy Mega Millions tickets and Powerball tickets online too.  Oregon residents have options to buy Mega Millions tickets and Powerball tickets online as well.  Note that some of these links will only work properly for residents of the states mentioned.Players outside the USA can use a reputable butler service, which provides scanned copies of the purchased lottery tickets securely held on behalf of the customer. In the past, the lottery ticket service was used by people out side the USA to win big jackpots in Oregon and Florida.In Tuesday night’s Mega Millions drawing, there was no jackpot winner, but 11 lucky players matched the first 5 numbers for a $1,000,000 prize: 1 from California, 3 from Florida, 1 from Illinois, 1 from Kansas, 1 from Mississippi, 2 from New Jersey, 1 from Pennsylvania, and 1 from Washington.The California second-prize winner will be awarded $1,401,723 instead of the fixed $1 million prize awarded in the other states. By law, California awards all lottery prizes on a pari-mutuel basis, meaning the prizes will change each drawing based on the number of tickets sold within California and the number of tickets that won at each prize level in the state. In this drawing the pari-mutuel prize calculation meant a 40% larger prize than what the other states award, but sometimes that can mean a smaller prize too.Out of all the second-prize tickets, only two from Florida were purchased with the Megaplier option for an extra $1 per play, multiplying their prize to $2 million because the Megaplier number drawn was 2.The Megaplier option is not available in California, because the fixed nature of the prize increase offered with the Megaplier is not compatible with California’s pari-mutuel payouts.Also, a total of 139 tickets matched four of the first five numbers plus the Mega Ball to win a $10,000 prize. Of those tickets, 15 were purchased with the Megaplier option, increasing the prize to $20,000, and 20 were sold in California, where the prize awarded this drawing is $9,710.The Mega Millions winning numbers for Tuesday, January 19, 2021, were 10, 19, 26, 28, and 50, with Mega Ball number 16. The Megaplier number was 2.Following the Tuesday drawing, the Mega Millions annuity jackpot estimate was raised $105 million from its previous amount of $865 million. The cash value was raised by $77.5 million from its previous amount of $638.8 million.Mega Millions is currently offered for sale in 45 states, plus Washington, D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Drawings are Tuesdays and Fridays at 11:00 pm Eastern Time. Tickets cost $2 each.Top 25 United States lottery jackpots of all timeFriday’s Mega Millions jackpot currently stands as the 3rd-largest lottery jackpot in world history.  That position may rise before the drawing, as lotteries are typically conservative in their initial estimates, and brisk sales may push the jackpot estimate higher by draw time.Powerball: $1.5864 billion, Jan. 13, 2016

I guess depending on ageDepends on your personality, and your track record with handling money responsibly, I think.Can you say “no” when someone close to you asks for more money?  If you’ve just bought a 2 million dollar car, do you have to buy the next one that you like too?   Do you feel guilty when you have extra and give it away so you don’t feel ashamed or greedy?Answering questions like that truthfully will tell you if you can handle getting the cash or if you should protect the future with an annuity.Marquette, MIUnited StatesMember #20540August 20, 2005917 PostsOffline📄January 20, 2021, 1:04 pmYAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!! I don’t have jackpot fatigue, I have losing fatigue…I may buy a ticket for this coming draw. Here, we have had a record jackpot for several draws in a row and there have been excessively few second prizes in Michigan.  I am sure most other states can say that too. If this keeps up they might as well convert the MM into a giant raffle game with weekly, quarterly and annual prizes.hinsdale, ilUnited StatesMember #125342March 28, 201237 PostsOffline📄January 20, 2021, 2:03 pmA bil by draw time friday likely. If it rolls, 1.2-1.3 bil by draw time next Tuesday, the later would mean a likely billion dollar cash value. If the current 74% is the indicator, then specifically a 1.36 bil annuity is needed.AustinUnited StatesMember #191205July 21, 201884 PostsOffline📄January 20, 2021, 3:26 pmInteresting, have no problems with saying “no”.  I think in TX you have to choose annuity or cash at time of sale but, if you choose annuity, your name will be published after 30 days. dang if you do, it’s best to go cash under trust. .
