Mega Millions® Jackpot Now At $273 Million

Friday's Mega Millions® jackpot has an estimated annuity of $273 million.

Dover, DE — The last time someone hit the MEGA MILLIONS® jackpot was in Kansas on March 12, 2019. Since then, the jackpot has continued to climb to $273 million dollars – making it the second largest jackpot of 2019.

“When the jackpots start to get this large, there’s always an increase in ticket sales as people hope for their chance to win big,” said Vernon Kirk, Director of the Delaware Lottery. “We would like to remind all Delaware Lottery players to please play responsibly.”
