The US $ 1 billion bonus hit a single person!

In the USA, which has the highest average jackpot figures considering the population in the world, a record lotto draw was held again. The third biggest lottery jackpot in US history went to a ticket in Michigan. If the unnamed fortunate wants to receive the entire $ 1 billion (approximately 7.41 billion TL) prize in cash, he will earn 739.6 million dollars (approximately 5.5 billion TL) with the reduction of taxes.

A person living in the US state of Michigan won the third biggest jackpot in the country’s history. The one billion dollar jackpot hit the unnamed person’s ticket. The winning numbers were announced as 4-26-42-50-60 and Mega Ball 24.


Mega Million tickets are sold in 44 states of the USA and the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands. In the lottery, where the probability of winning the jackpot is one in 302 million, a single ticket is sold for $ 2.

However, if the jackpot winner receives their prize in cash in one go, they have to pay a portion of it in tax. If the Michigan winner chooses to get his prize this way, $ 739.6 million will remain from the billion-dollar jackpot.


On the other hand, Carole Bober Gentry, the spokesperson of the institution, stated that this is the second biggest jackpot in the history of the Mega Millions and the third biggest in the history of the US lottery. The $ 1.537 billion won by one person in South Carolina on October 23, 2018 still retains the title of the world’s largest lotto awarded on a single ticket.

Mega Million tickets are sold in 44 states of the USA and the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands. The rules of the Mega Millions draw, which have been held since 2002, have been changed over time, making it difficult to win. This allows the distributed prize to accumulate and reach record amounts. (ntv)
