Someone Won The Powerball But The Mega Millions Is Up For Grabs
While someone in Maryland won the massive $730 million-dollar Powerball jackpot, you still have the chance to win big with the Mega Millions drawing this week. For the past few weeks, people buying lotto tickets and dreaming of what they would do if they won big.
Every week, we would hear how no one won the big jackpot and the prize money went higher and higher until it hit an estimated $730 million dollars with a cash-out option of $546 million. In case you want to double-check your numbers, the winning numbers for last night’s Powerball drawing were: 40-53-60-68-69 and a Powerball of 22.
Last night we finally found out some lucky individual was the winner and sadly, it wasn't you or me. But thankfully, we still have a chance to grab a piece of that massive, Mega Millions jackpot. The Mega Millions lottery is currently at an estimated $970 million dollars with a cashout option of $716.3 million.
If you end up being that lucky winner, you can either take your prize money as an annuity paid out over 30 years, or opt for the cash prize instead. Just remember you're still paying taxes so it'll be significantly less, but hey, still way more than what we're making a year at our day jobs.
If you're feeling lucky and want to take your chance at the big prize, head to the Mega Millions website to see where you can buy tickets and play. Good luck!
