The Mega Millions Draw and Jackpot
The last time the Mega Million winning numbers produced a jackpot winner was on 31 July 2020.
The lucky winner walked off with the entire $22 million (approximately R382.5 million) jackpot amount – though the actual winnings were less as the winner needed to factor in federal and state-level tax obligations.
As a result of not having had a jackpot winner on Friday, 14 August 2020, the next Mega Million jackpot stands at an amount of $40 million (R695.6 million).
The next Mega Millions draw will be on Tuesday, 18 August 2020.
