With a purse of up to $830 million to be one of the largest in history, the draw for the Mega Millions lottery from July 26, 2022, already has winning numbers.
The winning numbers of the Mega Millions drawn are: 7 – 29 – 60 – 63 – 66, and the Mega Ball is 15.
It is worth mentioning that the site https://www.megamillions.com/ was down at the time of knowing the winning numbers of the long-awaited raffle.
Tuesday’s drawing ranked second only to two other Mega Millions draws in jackpot size and was fourth place counting all lottery draws in the history of the United States.
But despite the monstrous prize for whoever is the next Mega Millions winner, the chances of success in a lottery of this nature are impressively remote.
On the eve of the draw on July 26, calculations began to appear that the odds of winning the jackpot were 1 in more than 302 million and that the odds of winning any of the other prizes in the contest without the Mega Ball were 1 in 12.6 million.
The largest lottery jackpot in the country was recorded in 2016 in the Powerball contest when one person won a prize of $1,586 million. It is followed by Mega Millions from 2018, of $1,537 million, and another of $1,050 million in 2021, whose winners were players from South Carolina and Michigan, respectively.
If any player does not hold the winning numbers for Tuesday, the pool will increase for the next draw, which will take place on Friday, July 29. A ticket to play Mega Millions costs $2.
