This Years Biggest Mega Millions Jackpot is Happening Right Now

[detroit.cbslocal.com] DETROIT (WWJ) July 11, 2017 10:25 AM - It’s the biggest Mega Millions jackpot of the year and it could be all yours! 


The prize for Tuesday, July 11’s Mega Millions drawing is estimated at $202 million — and that figure could grow before the big drawing, which takes place at 10:59 p.m. 

The cash option is estimated around $123 million. The $202 million jackpot is the largest Mega Millions jackpot in 2017. 

In January, one ticket purchased in California matched the five white balls and Mega ball to win a $188 million jackpot. 

The last Michigan player to win the Mega Millions jackpot was Kelsey Zachow, of Port Huron. Zachow won the game’s $66 million jackpot in June 2014. 

If a Michigan player win’s tonight’s $202 million jackpot, it would be the second-largest Mega Millions prize won in the state. 

On April 22, 2005, a Port Huron couple, Ralph and Mary Stebbins, won $208 million. 

Mega Millions drawings take place each Tuesday and Friday evening. 

Each Mega Millions play is only $1. Tickets can be purchased until 10:45 p.m. for Tuesday’s drawing.
