Winning the Mega Millions lottery? Here’s how much you’ll really keep

Powerball prize grows to $620 million after Mega Millions payoff reaches record $1.6 billion

The second-largest jackpot was a $1.586 billion Powerball drawing on January 13, 2016.

Tomorrow's Powerball lottery prize stands at US$620 million, making it the fifth largest jackpot in United States history, after no one got all six numbers in Saturday's drawing.

Players also have a chance at winning the Powerball jackpot, which is now up to $620 million.

On Monday, they kept the projected jackpot at $1.6 billion but will re-examine the numbers Tuesday to decide if it should go up.

The $1.6 billion estimated jackpot would be the largest prize in US history.

With a world record Mega Millions jackpot being drawn on Tuesday night, the Kentucky Lottery is celebrating by offering coupons for free tickets.

An average three months worth of tickets were sold just last week alone.

The jackpot is the largest in USA history and has created a frenzy at stores across the country.

"I would want to set myself up, but still be working so I don't erode into nothingness", Baron said. New York's 8.82 percent tax on lottery winnings-the highest in the country-means my final lump sum payout would be about $490 million.

You won't have to worry about the stock market struggles if you hit one of the two big lottery jackpots up for grabs this week.

If it seems like lottery jackpots are getting larger and larger, it's because they are getting larger and larger.

In case you are betting with friends, make sure to have something in writing, where everyone agrees to the terms of what's going to happen.

Not everyone can buy Mega Millions lottery tickets online. He said he doesn't really understand all the excitement and thought it a little odd that more people come in when the jackpot reaches these record high numbers. "I'd be more surprised if it doesn't get hit".

In fact, it's possible we may never know the name of the victor. South Carolina's previous record-holder - someone who bought a $400 million Powerball ticket in the Columbia area in 2013 - never wanted to be identified.

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

Director of the Washington State Lottery Marcus Glasper told KIRO Radio that on Sunday, tickets were selling at a rate of about $132,000 every 20 minutes.
