U.S. Lottery Hits Record Jackpot

According to Reuters, Mega Millions has set a world record for lottery jackpots after there were no winning numbers for the $1 billion prize on Friday. The previous record was a $1.586 billion jackpot for a Powerball drawing in 2016. If a player hits all six numbers to win the Mega Millions jackpot on Tuesday, they can opt for an immediate cash payment of $904 million or receive the $1.6 billion prize over 29 years. If there is more than one winner, the jackpot will be divided proportionately among the winners.
