Billion-Dollar Jackpot up for Grabs

12,000 tickets sold per minute as Mega Millions’ jackpot hits $1.6 billion

The jackpot's estimated cash value is $913 million, an option favored by most winners.

05, 28, 62, 65, 70 and Mega Ball is 05.

Tuesday's jackpot has been soaring since July, when a group of office workers in California won $543 million.

"Everyone has a chance to win", said Lisa Krasinski of Peru, who bought two Mega Millions and two Powerball tickets Monday morning at the Shell gas station in La Salle.

He purchased a massive stack of lottery tickets for the October 23 Mega Millions drawing where the pot has swelled to $1.6 BILLION and fans are dragging him for being greedy.

Mega Millions tickets are $2 and are sold in 44 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands. She points out that some people don't necessarily play to win.

The $1.6 billion Mega Millions jackpot has set an all-time world record, surpassing the $1.586 billion Powerball drawing that occurred on January 13, 2016.

Powerball has climbed since there was a victor in NY on August 11.

Sinins said such plans can turn into a protracted legal fight, hard feelings and court orders - like in the case of his clients, who eventually won a jury verdict and split the lottery winnings.

In order to earn a chance at the historic prize, players purchase tickets for $2 and must match all five numbers plus the Mega Ball to win the jackpot. The largest single prize went to a 2017 player from MA who celebrated a $758.7 million Powerball payday. He said the store gets really busy on drawing days, which are Tuesdays and Fridays.

Those unlucky on Tuesday can still try their luck the following day for the 620 million-dollar Powerball jackpot.

The average American spends about $223 per year on lottery tickets, according to a survey from LENDedu. In most other states, tickets may be purchased up until 15 minutes prior to the drawing -10:45 p.m. ET.

For Henderson, he enjoys hearing what people would do with the money.
