Mega Millions Ticket Sold in Morgan Hill Worth More Than $3 Million

A Mega Millions lottery ticket rested on the shop counter at the Street Corner Market on Wednesday in Cincinnati

The winning numbers in Friday night's drawing were 15-23-53-65-70 and the Mega Millions number was 7.

If no one wins the jackpot, then the next jackpot is estimated to rise to $1.6 billion, with an estimated cash value of $904.9 million.

The new jackpot breaks the record for a US lottery prize, which was set in 2016 when the Powerball jackpot reached $1.58 billion. Its jackpot rose on Friday to $470 million from $430 million, with a lump sum value of $268.6 million. But, if no one does, the Mega Millions jackpot will only hit a new record.

According to Mega-Millions, "visitors to the United States are always welcome to purchase tickets for our game from an American lottery retailer while they are visiting this country; you do not need to be a resident to win".

The amount of the jackpot increased after no winning ticket was drawn on Friday.

.

Someone bought a Mega Millions lottery ticket at this Arco station in Morgan Hill that matched five of the winning numbers. "It's always a thrill to have both jackpots rolling, but there's an extra spark now with Mega Millions reaching a new record", he added to ABC News.

Caravan migrants turn back at Mexico border
Mexico's Foreign Ministry said in a statement that it needs the United Nations body's help to manage all the refugee applications. It's important to remember that for Mexico, migration isn't just about people coming into the country, Salazar says.

The winning numbers will be posted online and as well as on the Mega Millions app after they're revealed. As Jane L. Risen, a professor of behavioral science at the University of Chicago, puts it: When the jackpot grows so large, "it creates this sense of community".

In the middle of the 20th century, when lotteries first started in the USA, they were sold to states as a way to benefit the American public.

The prize was shared by winners in Kansas, Illinois and Maryland. The boxer reportedly told the cashier to ring up thousands of dollars' worth of Mega Millions tickets. That makes it the second-largest drawing in Mega Millions history.

The taxes imposed on lottery winnings differ by state.

The theory was that bigger jackpots would draw more attention, leading more players to fork out for a $2 ticket.

After it was announced that the Mega Millions jackpot was going up to $1 billion, many people went out and tried their hand at trying to gain the prize.
