If you’re looking to play for the largest jackpot available at the moment, Mega Millions is your game. Both of the big jackpot games were hit recently, resetting their top prizes, but the Mega Millions jackpot is already up to $52 million for Aug. 9. The lump sum cash value of tonight’s jackpot is $30.3 million before taxes.
In the previous drawing, one player hit the second-tier prize of $1 million by matching the first five white balls. That’s just one ball away from winning it all. That lucky ticket was sold in Kentucky.
Adding the optional Megaplier to the ticket for $1 would have been a good idea that day. The Megaplier drawn on Friday was 3x, and would have made that ticket worth $3 million.

Fast Play jackpots make PA Lottery players say Wow
A PA Lottery Fast Play jackpot win made a splash this week. The progressive jackpot for the game Wow was $135,335, when a player bought the winning ticket at Fredericktown Beer, located at 518 Front St. in Washington County. The retailer earned a $500 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
The Wow game is now closed, but plenty of other PA Lottery Fast Play games are available at lottery retailers, or online at the PA iLottery site.
Prices for Fast Play games range from $1 to $30. Games with higher initial progressive prizes cost more than your national draw games like Mega Millions, but in exchange you get much better odds of winning. See the specific odds and prizes available at the PA Lottery website.
The largest jackpot ever won on a PA Lottery Fast Play game was $1.92 million, hit on May 28 this year, on a game called Top Dollar. Currently, another game called Fat Wallet offers a jackpot of $1.4 million. A Fat Wallet ticket will run you $30.
