MEGA MILLIONS JACKPOT HITS $390 MILLION; PLEASE PLAY RESPONSIBLY
June 26, 2016

A string of drawings without a jackpot winner have grown the estimated Mega Millions jackpot to its highest level since March 2014. Because of the high jackpot, the Nebraska Lottery reminds customers to play responsibly.

The Mega Millions jackpot starts at $15 million and continues to grow by at least $5 million each drawing until it is won. There have been 31 consecutive Mega Millions drawings since March 8 without a jackpot winner. This run has grown the estimated jackpot for the Tuesday, June 28 drawing to $390 million or $265.4 million with the cash option selected. If won, this will be the 4th largest jackpot in Mega Millions history.

The Nebraska Lottery began offering Mega Millions in March of 2010. The largest Mega Millions jackpot on record occurred in March 2012 when three winners in Illinois, Kansas and Maryland split a $656 million jackpot.

Mega Millions jackpot winners have two options for collecting their payment: 30 annuity payments or one cash payment at present value. The annuity option provides annual payments that increase each year. The present cash value is less than the advertised jackpot, which is based on the 29-year annuity option. Winning Mega Millions numbers are announced every Tuesday and Friday at 10:00 p.m. Central Time and posted at the Nebraska Lottery website, nelottery.com.
