MEGA MILLIONS: $1 million Mega Millions ticket sold in Branson West, Mo

Bronx resident wins $1 million in Mega Million lottery jackpot

Powerball, also owned and operated by the Multi-State Lottery Association, reached $620 million with no victor Saturday.

The Illinois Lottery is handing out free tickets at a metro-east grocery store Tuesday ahead of the Mega Millions drawing.

A 2017 financial statement from the North Dakota state lottery said sales during fiscal year 2016 were 22 percent higher than 2017 in part because of the Powerball jackpot that reached $1.5 billion that January. He said he just bought his ticket- only one!

That would make it the fifth-largest jackpot in USA history.

But whether it's how many tickets you buy or the set of numbers you pick, experts say the chances of winning still aren't great.

"I would donate to kidney and breast-cancer research", Davis said. The $1.6bn jackpot, the most ever given away in a U.S. lottery, would be enough to buy an National Football League team, the Washington Post and the most expensive home in NY and still have spare change to buy a few islands and private jets.

The lottery fever sweeping the United States has some billionaire hopefuls feeling anxious: Can a record jackpot in your pocket be too much of a good thing? He doesn't usually throw money at the bigger lotteries - except when the jackpot gets this big.

That can throw the entire government into a lot of uncertainty", the Prime Minister said. "Now we have a hung parliament". Independent Bob Katter said he did not want to see the government destabilised or an early election called.

I'll never win, but you gotta give it a shot. Powerball is played in the same places, plus Puerto Rico. The one-time cash option is estimated at $905 million - still nothing to sneeze at.

If you do win the jackpot in Iowa and you want to keep it a secret, think again.

"It would be good to put it in a trust, so that's not you that's holding it, it's this trust that's holding the money for you and giving you that income", says Henry Sotelo, law instructor at TMCC.

It's been growing since July, when a group of co-workers in California won $543 million and no one has been able to match all six numbers since then.

As a regular lottery player, he said he buys more tickets when the jackpot is higher.
