About the latest jackpot winners
The latest jackpot winners matched every number in an October 2021 drawing where $108 million was at stake. It was a family from Arizona, who selected the one-time payment option and took home $75.2 million.
What is the difference between a one-time cash payment and annual payments? If you win, you will have to choose between “a one-time lump sum payment equal to the Mega Millions jackpot cash” or the annuity option that “pays out as one immediate payment followed by 29 annual payments. Each payment is 5% higher than the previous one. This helps protect winners’ lifestyle and purchasing power in periods of inflation.”
What about the Powerball?
The Mega Millions and Powerball are among the most recognized lottery games in the United States and abroad. Both are accumulating pots. Powerball was already racking up $632.6 million when not one but two players hit the jackpot last week, but what does this mean?
Now, the lottery has restored the Powerball jackpot to $38 million with an option for the winner to claim a one-time cash payment of $26.4 million. If you want to try your luck playing Powerball, the next drawing will take place this Wednesday night, January 12.

The big Mega Millions winners
Mega Millions began in 1996 as The Big Game, although in 2002 it changed to the new Mega Millions format as we know it now. The lottery establishes a minimum pot of 40 million dollars that grows more and more as no one matches all six numbers. The truth is that some have hit unimaginable amounts.
These have been the BIG Mega Millions winners: May 2016, in North Dakota there was a winner of $3 million dollars. March 2021: North Dakota again with another $3 million winner. March 2016: Wyoming had a $5 million winner. August 2020: Virgin Islands had a $3 million winner. Not bad right?
