Mega Millions Soars Toward a New Jackpot Record

21 Jan 2021

The Mega Millions jackpot could reach $1 billion by its next draw! While it’s too early to tell if we will see a record-breaking jackpot, the current jackpot is the second highest Mega Millions jackpot ever.

Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots

  • The Mega Millions jackpot has skyrocketed to $970 million, its 2nd highest ever. The draw is on Friday night so make sure you get your Mega Millions tickets in time!

  • Powerball’s jackpot climbed to $731.1 million before it was won by a single lucky player in Maryland. This was Powerball's 4th biggest jackpot ever. You can still be a Powerball jackpot winner! Purchase your Powerball tickets before the draw on Wednesday night.

Mega Millions tickets are in huge demand and there is a good chance that the jackpot prize will be boosted even higher before the draw.

Mega Millions has been rolling over since its jackpot was last won in September. If there are no winners this weekend, the lottery could soon set a new record. The top Mega Millions jackpot ever is $1.537 billion, awarded to a single lucky winner in October 2018. That is just slightly smaller than Powerball's world-record $1.586 jackpot from January 2016.

If you want to take a chance on getting into the record books, try your luck at winning the Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots!
