Mega Millions Draws Winning Numbers for Record-Breaking $720 Million Jackpot

A record-breaking $720 million jackpot was up for grabs in the Mega Millions drawing, just two days after America’s seventh billion-dollar Powerball jackpot was won. The winning numbers for the Mega Millions were 29-40-47-50-57, with the Mega Ball being 25. It had been three months since anyone had won either the Mega Millions or Powerball, with the last Mega Millions jackpot being won on April 18.

If the winner chooses to receive the prize in a single payment, it would be worth $369.6 million. However, if they opt for the 29-year annuity, the advertised amount, the prize would be worth more over its lifetime. Federal taxes would take nearly 40% of the prize money, with the possibility of additional state taxes.

Mega Millions tickets, priced at $2 each, are sold in 45 states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The odds of winning a Mega Millions jackpot are 1 in 302.5 million.

But it’s important to remember that in the end, lottery games are still games of chance, and it’s all about being in the right place at the right time.
