Mega Millions recently modified its formula, making it less likely that any given ticket will win. That means roughly $904 million in your pocket before state and federal taxes.

According to USA Today, if there are no winners as of Oct. 19, the prize will increase to $1.6 billion by Tuesday, Oct. 23.

Tickets can be purchased now for the drawing.

Lucas could choose between an annuity with 20 payments of $50,000 a year or a $600,00 lump sum. If a single victor was awarded the prize and took the cash lump sum, they would end up with $565.6 million. The new total ties the largest-ever USA lottery prize.

A 2016 Powerball jackpot that was worth $1.58 billion is the current record-holder for largest jackpot in history.

Another $1 million winning ticket was sold at a BP gas station in Chicago. The biggest single payout came in August 2017, when a MA woman claimed a single lump sum worth $480.5 million. Residents in the six states that don't have lotteries (Alabama, Alaska, Hawaii, Mississippi, Nevada and Utah) can buy their tickets often right across the border. Consider the current $430 million Powerball jackpot. Before 2017, players picked five numbers between 1 and 75 and then one number between 1 and 15.
