It’s only the first day of summer, but it’s already shaping up to be a hot one. At least when it comes to Mega Millions prizes. The current jackpot for June 21 is up to a whopping $290 million. The last three jackpot winners combined took home less than that!
The lump sum cash value of the prize is about $162 million.
In the previous drawing on Friday, three players came scary close to hitting the big prize. Tickets sold in California, Florida, and Texas all matched the first five numbers, but fell short of matching the gold Mega Ball. Those players are still rewarded handsomely, with the CA ticket winning $1 million, and the other two winning $2 million.
The FL and TX players paid an extra $1 for the Megaplier when buying their tickets. A multiplier of 2x was drawn, resulting in their prizes being doubled.
Check tonight’s Mega Millions winning numbers here, after the drawing at 11:00 p.m. ET.
