In case you hadn’t heard, the Mega Millions jackpot has continued to grow, and will likely grow higher than the $1.6 billion it had reached after Friday night’s drawing. Are you in?
The $1.6 billion is based on one ticket winner taking an annuity option with 30 payments. Otherwise, taking a lump sum would be worth about $904 million (before taxes).
The largest lottery ever won was a Powerball jackpot in 2016 worth $1.586 billion.
