MEGA MILLIONS® Jackpot closing in on $400 Million

Tonight's MEGA MILLIONS® jackpot has an estimated annuity of $375 million dollars.

(DOVER, Del.) — The temperature isn’t the only thing that is climbing this July. The MEGA MILLIONS® estimated annuity jackpot has risen to $375 million for tonight’s drawing after no one matched all six numbers on the July 13th drawing.

So far in 2018, there have been three MEGA MILLIONS® jackpots won, with the most recent on May 4th for $142 million. Delaware had a $1,000,000 winner on April 20th.

The current $375 million jackpot is the 10th largest in MEGA MILLIONS® history.

“It’s always exciting when the jackpots climb this high,” said Vernon Kirk, director of the Delaware Lottery. “This would certainly be a life-changing big win.”

MEGA MILLIONS® drawings are held every Tuesday and Friday at 11:00 PM EST with tickets for tonight’s jackpot on sale until 9:45 PM.
