Another Mega Millions drawing tonight offers players a chance at a life-changing jackpot prize. With no big winner in the previous drawing, the prize climbs to $191 million for Sept. 6. The lump sum cash value of Tuesday’s jackpot is $105.3 million before withholding.
In the previous drawing, a New York player got lucky and hit the second-tier prize by matching all five white balls drawn. That prize is usually $1 million, but the winner had the Megaplier option on their ticket. With a multiplier of 2x drawn on Friday, the prize was doubled to $2 million.

Mega Millions’ largest jackpots
Did you know that Mega Millions has awarded three jackpot prizes that exceeded $1 billion? It’s true! In fact, two of those jackpots were hit since 2021. The most recent jackpot, won by a player in Illinois on July 29, reached $1.337 billion. Just last year, a Michigan player won $1.050 billion on Jan. 22.
Furthermore, there has been one prize larger than those two. The largest Mega Millions prize ever won was $1.537 billion, which is also the world’s largest lottery prize ever won on a single ticket. That whopping prize was hit by an anonymous player in South Carolina in 2018.
Since the jackpot amount is based on ticket sales, it takes some time for the prize to reach those heights. This year, it took about three months of ticket sales to push the prize to the $1 billion mark in July.
