The fallen Mega Millions prize in Michigan is the third largest jackpot in a lottery ever. On 13 January 2016, the Powerball worth $1.586 billion (€1.3 billion) fell. However, that prize had to be shared by three people. The second biggest jackpot ever fell on 23 October 2018. The Mega Millions was then worth $1.537 billion and fell on a ticket bought by someone in South Carolina.
The Mega Millions is a lottery for which you can buy tickets in 45 states in America, in Washington DC, and in the US Virgin Islands. Not to be confused with the MegaMillions slots in Holland Casino, the Mega Millions is similar to the Eurojackpot and EuroMillions in Europe.
The Eurojackpot in Europe never exceeds €90 million. That prize has already been won twelve times.
