“This drawing was the third-largest in the history of the game and the seventh-largest in American lottery history”
After a player from Ohio won a drawing of $253 million on April 19th, the jackpot returned to $20 million, followed by consecutive Mega Millions jackpots on April 18th and 14th.
According to the official Powerball website, a player from California matched all six numbers to win a $2.04 billion ($997.6 million) jackpot on November 7th, the largest jackpot ever offered in American lottery history.
The previous record for the greatest jackpot in terms of both cash value and annuity was broken on January 13th, 2016, when the $1.586 billion ($983.5 million cash value) Powerball drawing surpassed it and the largest cash value per ticket.
The Mega Millions game has also surpassed the $1 billion mark five times. Powerball and Mega Millions games jointly offered a jackpot of more than $1.7 billion for the first time in January 2021.
For each subsequent game, both jackpots grow until a ticket matching all six drawn numbers wins a jackpot, with each relevant game including an extra Mega Millions Gold Ball or Powerball.
