After just breaking onto the list of the top ten highest Mega Millions jackpots in the last drawing, the game’s Grand Prize makes a leap into the No. 5 spot tonight. The annuity value is estimated at $555 million for July 19. The cash value of the prize is about $317 million before withholding. If there’s a winner tonight, they can choose to bag that amount in a single payment.
If there’s no jackpot winner tonight, the PA Lottery estimates the prize will roll on to about $630 million for Friday’s drawing (about $360 million cash, before withholding). That new prize sum would remain at five on the top ten list, with the potential to leapfrog to the third spot if the jackpot survives another drawing.

National Lottery Week shines light on PA Lottery benefits
Since 1971, proceeds from the PA Lottery have benefited programs and services for older PA residents. PA remains the only state to designate lottery funds to benefit seniors.
PA Lottery executive director, Drew Svitko, said in a press release, “As we recognize National Lottery Week, we’re proud to say that thanks to our valued players we’ve been able to generate nearly $33 billion over the past 50 years.”
Players can benefit too, of course, like the recent jackpot winner of the PA Lottery’s popular Treasure Hunt game. The player, who purchased their ticket online, matched all six numbers drawn on Sunday, July 16, to win the ninth largest Treasure Hunt jackpot of $200,000 before withholding.
