$636 Million Mega Millions Jackpot is Finally Won

Click Now!

On Tuesday December 17th the $636,000,000 Mega Millions jackpot was finally won by two very lucky ticket holders in California and Georgia. The winning numbers were 8, 14, 17, 20 and 39, with a Megaball of 7.

It is not really surprising that the jackpot has grown so big when you consider how ridiculous the odds are. Prior to October 2013 the odds were approximately 1 in 176 million which were bad enough. However, on October 4th 2013 the Mega Millions operators increased the pool of numbers that players choose from. As a result the Mega Millions odds are now 1 in 259 million. It is therefore probably not that surprising that the jackpot that was finally won yesterday rolled over for 22 consecutive draws. I fully expect jackpots of this enormity to be a far more regular occurrence in future.
