Mega Millions jackpot hits $868 mln, second-largest in U.S. history

2018-10-17 19:02
The U.S. Mega Millions jackpot swelled to $868 million early on Wednesday (October 17), the second-largest in U.S. history, after no winning ticket was sold in Tuesday night's draw. The Mega Millions jackpot rose from $667 million after no one hit the six numbers drawn on Tuesday, extending a winless streak for the top prize that has lasted since July. The lottery prize is the largest-ever for Mega Millions and the country's second-highest on record, trailing a $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot that was paid out in 2016.
