Tuesday’s Mega Millions jackpot tops an estimated $565 million

The holiday shopping season is in full swing — at least for Mega Millions lottery ticket buyers — as officials say the estimated jackpot for Tuesday night’s drawing topped half a billion dollars.

As of Monday evening, lottery officials put Tuesday’s prize at $565 million — or more than $293 million if it’s delivered in cash — after Friday’s final drawing left no one holding ticket that matched all six numbers.

Tuesday’s drawing will take place at 11:00 PM EST.

Tickets sold in California and Florida for the Oct. 14 drawing shared the final Mega Millions jackpot of $502 million. More than 20 drawings held since then have won the lottery’s top prize.

Lottery officials say since Mega Millions began in 2002, there have been 11 jackpot wins of $500 million or more. The record Mega Millions jackpot is more than $1.5 billion won in 2018, with a jackpot in excess of $1.3 billion won in July in Illinois.

Biggest US Lottery Jackpot Ever Won in November was 2.04 billion dollars. The winner purchased the lucky Powerball ticket in Southern California.
