The current jackpot amounts for the nation’s two most popular lottery games are neck and neck, and they’re fast approaching $200 million. If you’ve got that lucky feeling, the ticket to buy (for tonight’s drawing at least) is Mega Millions.
The Mega Millions Grand Prize for June 3 is estimated at $189 million. The lump sum cash value (the amount a winner would get if they want the whole prize in a single payment) is about $110 million before taxes.
Mega Millions drawings are held every Tuesday and Friday. The last drawing did not have a jackpot winner, so the top prize continued to grow. The largest prize awarded on Tuesday was $1 million to a player in Ohio.
To win $1 million, your first five numbers have to match the five white balls drawn. Your numbers can come up in any order. The gold Mega Ball is the final ball drawn from a separate pool of numbers, but it’s not needed for the $1 million prize.
Check tonight’s Mega Millions winning numbers here, after the drawing at 11:00 p.m. ET.
