In the draw, 36 tickets matched the five main numbers and each of them won a prize of $1 million. Two players included the Megaplier in their ticket boosting their prize to $3 million.

Record-Breaking Jackpot

The Mega Millions jackpot was just slightly less than the prize awarded by Powerball back in January 2016. In that draw, $1.586 billion was shared by three lucky winners.

Mega Millions had been rolling over since the draw on 24 July 2018, when a single ticket purchased in San Jose, California, won a jackpot worth $543 million ($320.5 million cash).

Following its historic draw, the Mega Millions jackpot has been reset to $40 million. The next draw will take place on Friday, 26 October 2018.

Lottery fans worldwide are eager to play the upcoming Powerball draw, which offers a guaranteed jackpot of $750 million – the third highest Powerball jackpot ever!
