Listen to this article

MS Lottery:

The allure of a life-changing windfall has pushed the Mega Millions® jackpot to $1.1 billion with an estimated cash value of $550.2 million ahead of the drawing tonight, Tuesday, Aug. 1.

Tonight’s drawing, the fourth largest in the game history, will be the 30th in the jackpot run. The jackpot rolled again after no ticket matched all six numbers drawn Friday night: 5-10-28-52-63 and Megaball of 18. The jackpot was last hit in the April 18 drawing for a win of $20 million in New York.

The largest jackpot in Mega Millions history was $1.537 billion, won in October 2018. The odds of matching all five numbers plus the Mega Ball are about 1 in 302.6 million.

The Wednesday, Aug. 2, drawing of the Powerball® jackpot is now up to an estimated $95 million with an estimated cash value of $48.1.1 million, and the Tuesday, Aug. 1, drawing of the Mississippi Match 5 jackpot is an estimated $141,000.
