Mega Millions Jackpot Estimate Raised to $815 Million

RELEASE DATE: 3/15/2024

With strong sales as the excitement builds around the country, the estimated jackpot for tonight’s Mega Millions® drawing has been increased to $815 million ($385.1 million cash). If won, it would be the sixth largest jackpot since the game began in 2002; only five jackpots exceeding $1 billion have been higher.

Friday night’s drawing will be conducted as usual at the WSB-TV studio in Atlanta, Georgia, at 11 p.m. Eastern time. Soon afterwards, the draw video will be available through the Mega Millions website.

The jackpot has been rolling since it was last won with two tickets in California on December 8. We remind players to check their tickets – there are eight prize tiers in addition to the jackpot. In the March 12 drawing alone, there were a total of 1,368,940 winning tickets at all non-jackpot prize levels.

Tickets for the $2 game are sold in 45 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands. In most jurisdictions, players can add the Megaplier for an additional $1 to multiply their non-jackpot prizes. Half of the proceeds from the sale of each Mega Millions ticket remains in the state where the ticket was sold, where the money supports designated good causes and retailer commissions.
