RELEASE DATE: 7/8/2017
The largest Mega Millions jackpot seen in twelve months will be up for grabs next Tuesday, July 11, after no ticket matched all six numbers drawn Friday night – the white balls 2, 9, 11, 28 and 60, plus the Mega Ball 10. Tuesday’s estimated jackpot is $202 million ($123 million cash)!
The jackpot has been rolling since it was last won on April 28, when David Trapp won a $61 million prize in California. Two other jackpots have also been awarded this year – $191 million to Jack Freney, also in California, and $177 million to Texan Eliberto Cantu with a ticket he purchased in Arkansas.
While the jackpot has remained elusive since April 28, there have been more than 24.2 million prizes won at all levels since that time, including 31 prizes of $1 million or more. Since January 1, more than 66.5 million winning tickets have been sold; 59 of those have been worth $1 million or more.
