The fourth largest Mega Millions jackpot in history is going to be awarded tonight! Did you get your ticket, yet?
At $1.35 billion, the jackpot well-outweighs the $2 ticket price, but be advised… the likelihood of winning is infinitesimally low. Still, three previous billion dollar prizes have been awarded in the last decade.
“There’s always an air of excitement around the country when Mega Millions jackpots soar,” the president of the Georgia lottery said in a statement. “The growing jackpot is a source of entertainment and winnings for players while generating important dollars for the good causes supported by each lottery. We are grateful for our players, appreciate our hardworking retailers, and remind everyone to play responsibly.”
