Although it just seemed like there was a large sum of money up for grabs with the Powerball jackpot being won late last month, the Mega Millions has made its way up to that high price range as well.
With nobody winning the Tuesday night odds, Wisconsinites and people around the nation are set to test their luck at the $1.25 billion jackpot, higher than the $1 billion estimated that was won off of the Powerball lottery. The last jackpot winning ticket for the Mega Millions was sold back in April, which has given the number a chance to rise throughout the summer months.
However, it hasn’t all been bad luck for people who are trying to win money, especially for those in the Door and Kewaunee County areas. The JP Express in Algoma sold a winning Powerball ticket worth $200,000 in the Power Play, and was claimed by a local resident. That winning could give local residents their glimmer of hope for this Mega Millions Jackpot.
The next drawing for the Mega Millions is set for Friday night, and will have a cash option of $625.3 Million, one of the largest cash options in U.S. Lottery history.
