We’ve made it through another week, and it’s time for a fun, summer weekend. Some extra cash would help with that, wouldn’t it? The Mega Millions drawing tonight, June 17, boasts a jackpot of $273 million. That’s worth $151.7 million in cash, before taxes, if a potential winner tonight wants the prize in a single payment.
Don’t forget about the lower-tier Mega Millions prizes you might win by matching fewer than all six numbers. Some of them can be quite substantial, and the prizes eventually expire. Mega Millions announced that a ticket worth $1 million will expire at the end of June.
That ticket, sold in North Carolina, matched the first five numbers in the New Year’s Eve drawing on Dec. 31, 2021. Here in PA, lottery players have one year from the drawing date to claim their prize.
Check tonight’s Mega Millions winning numbers here, after the drawing at 11:00 p.m. ET.

A week full of PA Lottery winners
Three lotto players in PA lucked into big paydays this week. The PA Lottery sold a trio of $1 million–winning scratch-off tickets in Berks, Bucks, and Westmoreland counties.
The Price Is Right scratch-offs are still out there, and a few of them are worth $1 million. One ticket that sold at Jashan Convenience in Sellersville hit that top prize just this week.
The PA Lottery crowned another $1 million winner on the ticket $1,000,000 Cash King. That Westmoreland County winner was sold at Jadden Stop-N-Go on Constitution Boulevard in Arnold.
The third ticket has been around a little longer, and has seen some other big winners recently. A Berks County player hit the top prize on the $1,000,000 Power Payday ticket sold at Radcliffe’s Great Valu in Mertztown.
The lottery players weren’t the only winners. The retailers each earned a $5,000 bonus for selling the winning tickets. Each of those tickets cost $2o and offer top prizes of $1 million. Congratulations to the winners!
