This is not the first time that Mega Millions has produced such huge jackpots. In fact, it's quite common for this lottery game to offer multi-million dollar prizes. However, it's rare that someone actually wins them.
According to officials from the Multi-State Lottery Association (MUSL), who run Mega Millions along with Powerball and other state lotteries across America; this latest win marks only the fourth time this year that a player has claimed a grand prize in any US lottery game.
Now that someone has won Tuesday’s grand prize and taken home an after-tax cash payout worth around $199 million; attention will turn towards Friday’s upcoming drawing where another big jackpot awaits players with dreams of striking it rich.
As always though remember to play responsibly!
