Mega Millions Challenges Powerball Jackpot Hegemony

The Mega Millions lottery is the premier multi-state lottery in the US. It is often engaged in a neck and neck race for lottery supremacy with that other legendary powerhouse of lottery grandeur, the US Powerball. In recent months, Mega Millions draws have at times been overshadowed, but this week, US Powerball steps back into the ring with a whopping jackpot of $288 million, making it the world’s lotto darling once more.

Mega Millions Odds Are Better than its Rivals

Mega Millions offers you a 1 in 258 million chance to win the jackpot!

Compared to the Powerball, the second prizes in the Mega Millions are huge! Select the Megaplier and your second prize in the Mega Millions will amount to a staggering $5 million!

If you sit by idly though, nothing will ever happen! Wait too long and the whole world will buy tickets, decreasing the chance that you win the jackpot.

So go on, buy tickets for the $508 million Mega Millions and change your life forever! All that’s required of you is to pick five main numbers from a range of 1 to 75 as well as one Mega Ball.

Mega Millions Held World Jackpot Record for Ages!

It wasn’t until recent, that the Mega Millions held the world record for biggest-ever jackpot: a staggering $656 million! Mega Millions set this personal best way back in 2012 and the American lottery stayed in its #1 spot on the list of all-time biggest lottery jackpots until January 2016, when US Powerball finally surpassed its rival with its now famous $1.58 billion jackpot.
