The massive size of Tuesday's jackpot has created such a lottery frenzy that the March 27, 2012 Mega Millions winning numbers are now worth an estimated $363,000,000! That's up from the original prize amount of $356,000,000, and it has the potential to snowball even higher before the numbers are drawn Tuesday night. The more the media hypes this up, the higher the Mega Millions
jackpot will go. How high can it go? The sky's the limit! It's like a feeding frenzy of sorts, except with lottery piranhas!
According to the Los Angeles Times, "After Friday's drawing for $290 million came and went without a jackpot winner, (California Lottery) officials had projected the pot--based on ticket sales at the time of drawing--would grow to $356 million. On Monday, they upped the figure by $7 million, saying sales have outpaced expectations."
"Mega Millions Jackpot is a Monster!"
Philly.com is claiming the "Mega Millions jackpot is a monster!" And it's no wonder! The March 27th Mega Millions jackpot is the third largest in the game's history. The record jackpot is $390,000,000, which was set by Mega Millions in March 2007. Five years later, and it could go even higher than that if no one wins Tuesday night. "No jackpot this big has ever rolled over. If it does, expect the first annuity ever of more than $400 million," adds Philly.com.
No one has managed to match all six Mega Millions winning numbers since January 24, 2012. The jackpot has been growing exponentially since then, pumping millions and millions of dollars into the pot just waiting for someone to pick the lucky lottery numbers for $363,000,000.
