A person living in the US state of Michigan won the third-largest jackpot in the country’s history. The billion dollar jackpot hit the anonymous person’s ticket. The winning numbers were announced as 4-26-42-50-60 and Mega Ball 24.
THE POSSIBILITY OF WINNING ONE IN 302 MILLION
Mega Million tickets are sold in 44 states in the US and the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands. In the lottery, where the probability of winning the jackpot is one in 302 million, a single ticket sells for $ 2.
However, if the jackpot winner receives their one-time cash prize, they must pay a portion in taxes. If the Michigan winner chooses to win their prize this way, $ 739.6 million of the $ 1 billion jackpot will remain.
THE THIRD LARGEST BONUSES IN US HISTORY
On the other hand, Carole Bober Gentry, a spokeswoman for the institution, affirmed that this is the second largest jackpot in the history of Mega Millions and the third largest in the history of the American lottery. The $ 1.537 billion won by one person in South Carolina on October 23, 2018 still holds the title of the world’s largest lottery awarded with a single ticket.
Mega Million tickets are sold in 44 states in the US and the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands. The rules for the Mega Millions draw, which has been held since 2002, have been modified over time, making victory difficult. This allows the prize distributed to accumulate and reach record amounts.
