The prize money is getting bigger! The Mega Millions drawing is scheduled for July 29, but when is it?
People eagerly awaited the release of the results after it was announced that the winning lottery prize had risen from $1.1 billion to $1.28 billion, with an option for $747.2 million in cash.
In fact, the excitement was so great that DJ Khaled even bought raffle tickets in hopes of winning the cash.
When is the Mega Millions drawing on July 29th?
The Maga Millions drawing will take place at 11:00 PM ET (10:00 PM Central/8:00 PM Pacific) in Atlanta, Georgia.
While the numbers are being drawn at this stage, there are still a few hours left before lottery officials announce whether or not there has been a winner. This means people will have to wait a little longer to find out if there really was a winner.
This drawing is special because it is the third largest prize of any lottery game in the United States. This happened because there have been no similar numbers in the last 29 consecutive draws so far.
How long can you buy tickets?
You can purchase tickets until Friday, July 29th at 10:45 PM ET. That means you still have a few hours to get those tickets.
If there is no winner on Friday, the prize pool will increase and people will have to wait until Tuesday for the next draw. The draw is held every Tuesday and Thursday every week in one hour.
What was the biggest winning ticket?
This is not the first time that the lottery amount has risen to such a high level. In 2018, the lottery prize increased to $1.537 billion and was won by a South Carolina woman who was visiting Greenville and decided to buy a ticket to try her luck.
The name of the winner was never revealed as the woman chose to remain anonymous. He chose the one-time cash option of $877,784,124.
