"About the Mega Millions Jackpot & the LATEST MegaMillions Jackpot"
Most jackpot lottery games increase in size when they are not won by way of a Rollover until such time that the winning lottery numbers are selected.
Having said that – some lotteries Rollover more times and much more quickly than others and have much bigger incremental increases each time the top prize is not won – thus producing some absolutely huge – sometimes mind-boggling – jackpots.
This is just what makes the Mega Millions jackpot stand out among the vast majority of world lotteries – the size that its jackpot often reaches.
The Mega Millions jackpot figure is eagerly awaited twice every week after the draw has taken place every Tuesday and Friday evening.
The majority of lottery jackpots around the world tend to at anywhere between US$ 5 MILLION & US$ 15 MILLION and this, of course, would be a wonderful sum of money to win.
Since it began as The Big Game back in 1996 – the MegaMillions jackpot has produced an AVERAGE top prize of approximately US$ 49.37 MILLION and – now this is the really exciting bit – the Mega Millions Results will very regularly produce jackpots that Rollover to amounts that are very much larger than this.
You will see that – more often than not – the Mega Millions jackpot is being advertised at anything upwards of US$ 50 MILLION or even U$ 100 MILLION to US$ 200 MILLION making it among the TOP 2 World Lottery games in the whole of the lottery industry and certainly one of the richest lotteries available.
Every now & then the MegaMillions jackpot will quickly rise to even greater heights of over US$ 300 MILLION and occasionally even US$ 400 MILLION or more by which time the whole of the lottery playing world will be sitting up and taking notice.
This is what makes the Mega Millions Lottery such a firm favourite with so many millions of lottery players right across the USA and the rest of the world.
The size of the Mega Millions jackpot figures mentioned above are frequent and most other world lotteries are quite simply not capable of producing lottery jackpots so high – the reasons for this we will explain shortly.
Most world lottery jackpot games that increase in size when the top prize is not won have a limit on how many times they can rollover before they roll down with the prize then being shared among the next level of prize winners.
With the Mega Millions – there is no limit at all as to how many times the MegaMillions jackpot can rollover when no-one correctly picks the Mega Millions winning numbers.
The fact that the Mega Millions lottery can rollover an unlimited number of times is one of the main reasons why the MegaMillions jackpot can reach such high levels.
