Tonight: US Mega Millions Draws for $110 Million JackpotPublished May 5, 2015 by Amir G
Online lottery players are gearing up for tonight's Mega Millions $110 million jackpot draw.
The US Mega Millions lottery jackpot has once again reached jaw-dropping sums as it will draw for $110 million tonight (23:00 EST / 03:00 GMT). The jackpot rolled over after there was no winning ticket for the grand prize in Friday's $96 million drawing: the drawn numbers were 17, 18, 61, 66, 74 and the Mega Ball 03.
To win the entire $110 million, players must hit six matching numbers composed of five main numbers and the additional Mega Ball, but it's not only about the jackpot - hitting smaller combinations of numbers can yield very nice prizes as well.
Hitting all five numbers except the Mega Ball amounts to $1 million or $3 million with Megaplier; hitting four numbers plus the Mega Ball can bring a maximum of $15,000 and these combinations continue to vary with nice payouts.
The Mega Millions as well as the Powerball are amongst the most popular lotteries not only in the US but all over the world. Specifically the Mega Millions can be considered the world's "ultimate" lottery, having made it to lottery history in March 2012 when it paid a record-breaking jackpot of $656 million.
These fantastic sums attract millions of players from everywhere on the globe who participate in the weekly draws. The advent of online lottery tickets has erased virtual boundaries, letting people take place in the big US lottery draws regardless of location or nationality.
