A few days after the start of 2023, it seems that millions have a chance to change their lives thanks to the lottery. Who will be the lucky winner? Mega Millions reaches its second highest jackpot.

According to The Associated Press, the Mega Millions lottery prize rose again to an incredible estimated jackpot of $1.350 million after no one won the last draw. Tuesday’s winning combination was: 7, 13, 14, 15, 18 with the Gold Mega Ball 9.

The jackpot for this coming Friday’s draw will once again be historic for the Mega Millions communications team, in a statement they released early Wednesday morning.

“Now at $1.35 billion, the Mega Millions jackpot is moving up and making history as the second highest Mega Millions jackpot ever,” Pat McDonald, director of the Ohio Lottery and CEO of the Mega Millions Consortium, said in the note.

Only one other Mega Millions drawing had a higher jackpot: One ticket won $1.53 billion in South Carolina in 2018, Mega Millions said. The highest prize awarded by the lottery in the United States to date was the $2.04 billion won by a single Powerball ticket sold in California in November.

The new jackpot will only go to a winner who chooses to be paid via an annuity over 29 years. Almost all the winners opt for an immediate payment despite the fact that it is lower. For Friday’s drawing it would be an estimated $707.9 million.

Mega Millions is played in 45 states, as well as in Washington, DC and the US Virgin Islands, so millions of people in the United States do not lose faith that they are one of the lucky ones to get their hands on the juicy number.
