There were eight Mega Millions tickets in 2015 that hit the jackpot. The odds of matching all five white balls and the yellow Mega Ball are 1 in 259 million. Players have a 18,492,204-to-1 chance to match just the five winning numbers.
No one has won the jackpot since Washington resident Michael Burkett claimed his $157 million prize nearly four months ago. The ticket was sold by a Seattle-area 7-Eleven.
In January, one winning ticket was bought by Nancy Viola in Staten Island, which came with a top prize of $169 million. She decided on the lump sum option, and took home just under $65 million after taxes.
There have only been two jackpot winners this year. Mega Millions is played in 44 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
On May 24, a $1 million winning ticket was sold at ShopRite in Branchburg. The ticket was one of two sold in that drawing matching all five numbers but not the Mega Ball. Also in May, one lucky New Jerseyans took home $2 million playing Powerball.
The Powerball drawing will be held Wednesday, with a jackpot of $257 million. The cash option is estimated at $179.7 million.
The record for largest jackpot in U.S. lottery history was set in January when three winners split $1.59 billion. The largest Mega Millions prize was $656 million.
