Mega Millions' $750M jackpot awaits a winner this new year!

This new year’s bringing you a large prize as the Mega Millions jackpot experiences yet another rollover! Its jackpot now stands at $750 Million and you could scoop it all up this coming Friday. Read below for further details.

Mega Millions is boasting its second-biggest ever jackpot since its launch, with the prize amount being $750 Million - yes, that’s right! The jackpot was not won by anyone; therefore, it rolled over once again. 

The Mega Millions winning numbers’ results for the most recent drawing of the 12th of January, 2021 were as follows:

Main Numbers: 12, 14, 26, 28 & 33

Mega Ball: 9      Megaplier: 2x

There were a total of 3,701,286 fortunate winners in this particular draw, all of which scooped all kinds of different prizes. Nine people matched with the five main numbers and won $1 Million each. One of the nine winners had purchased the winning Mega Millions ticket with the Megaplier, so the prize doubled to $2 Million. 116 people won $10,000 each by managing to match with the four main numbers as well as the Mega Ball. 20 of them had the Megaplier with their Mega Millions ticket so their win automatically doubled to $20,000. 2,614 others won $500 when they matched with the four main numbers. 433 of them had their win doubled to $1000 due to the Megaplier. The overall possibility of winning a Mega Millions prize was 1 out of 24, which indeed is quite exciting. 

The Mega Millions jackpot was last won on the 15th of September, 2020 and it has been experiencing rollover ever since then. To add, since then, Mega Millions has had more than 25.5 million winning tickets sold on various levels - 41 of them are worth $1 Million and larger.

The largest-ever Mega Millions jackpot ever won took place in South Carolina on the 23rd of October, 2018 and it was a world-breaking record of $1.537 billion. The current Mega Millions jackpot could potentially reach that amount if not, it could also become the third-largest jackpot prize in American history. This is due to the fact that the Powerball lottery has had two wins in the same spectrum - $768.4 million and $758.7 million.

So, make sure to save your seat within the next draw which is happening this Friday, 15th of January at 11 PM. Who knows, your new year could start with an even bigger bang with a win such as this.
