At $321 million, the jackpot for the Tuesday drawing (Nov. 4) is the 8th largest in Mega Millions history.

In the past year, nine jackpots have been won, ranging from $20 million to a near-record $648 million, with a total of eleven winners (two jackpots were shared). There have been 174 Match 5 second-prize winners, most at the $1 million level; 11 of them won between $2 and $5 million because those tickets included the optional Megaplier purchase for an additional $1.

The jackpot has been growing since it was last won in California at $180 million on August 22, 2014. The largest Mega Millions Jackpot in 2014 was $414m. The highest ever Mega Millions jackpot was $656 million in 2012.

About Mega Millions:

Mega Millions, the game that holds the record for the largest jackpot in North American history, began on August 31, 1996 as the Big Game. The first drawing took place on September 6, 1996, with six states participating: Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan and Virginia. After fast growth of the game in 1997, a Tuesday drawing was added in February 1998. Players were given a larger choice of numbers and a “cash payout” option in January 1999. In /4/1999, New Jersey became the seventh member state. In /4/2002, the multi-state game was given the new name of “Mega Millions,” New York and Ohio became member states, and the game matrix and prize amounts were changed to offer players more excitement. In September 2002, Washington became the 10th member state, followed by Texas in December 2003. In June 2005, California became the 12th member, solidifying Mega Millions as the country’s most widely played multi-state jackpot game.

On January 31, 2010, 23 more state lotteries joined Mega Millions as an historic cross-selling agreement between Mega Millions and Powerball went into effect. With additional lotteries joining since then, Mega Millions is now played in 45 jurisdictions: 43 states plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.




On March 30, 2012, Mega Millions made history with the world’s largest prize in any jackpot game ever: $656 million. The jackpot was split three ways, by winning tickets in Kansas, Illinois and Maryland. The record still stands.
