US Mega Millions jackpot hits $1.6bn

Friday's Mega Millions jackpot soars to $1 billion No Mega Millions winner, jackpot climbs to $1.6 billion
Andy Castillo | 22 October, 2018, 05:26

The day after nobody won a $1 billion Mega Millions jackpot, the numbers were drawn for a relatively paltry Powerball prize of $470 million.

With no winning ticket picked Saturday, the combined total between the Mega Millions and Powerball lotteries has now reached a mind-blowing $2.2 billion.

No grand prize victor was drawn Saturday and the jackpot is now $620 million. The numbers to look for on the winning ticket are 16, 54, 57, 62, 69.

Australian lotto players might not have such a big prize to play for but this week $60 million is up for garbs with $10 million in Tuesday's Oz Lotto, $30 million in the Powerball draw on Thursday and then $20 in Saturday's Superdraw. But when they do, the amount is mind-blowing - as we can see in recent Mega Millions jackpots.

One Powerball ticket sold in CT is now worth $1 million after Saturday's drawing.

No information about the Knoxville victor is available until the prize is claimed.

Canada Now World’s Largest Legal Marijuana Marketplace
Cannabis possession was first criminalised in Canada in 1923, but medical marijuana has been legal in the country since 2001. Cannabis retailers warned of short-term shortages for cannabis products due to high demand and limited supply.

While the epic prize is up for grabs in the US, Lottoland UK customers can bet on the outcome of the MegaMillions lottery and potentially win a separate jackpot.

The drawings are held on CW20 around 11 p.m.

Fifteen tickets matched five numbers for second-tier prizes of at least $1 million.

The jackpot beats the previous highest, for $1.586 billion Powerball, drawn on January 13, 2016. There are smaller prizes, from $4 up to $1 million, for matching some, but not all, numbers.

The $2 million victor has not yet claimed their prize.
