Tuesday night's Mega Millions lottery drawing for an estimated $1.6 billion will be the biggest jackpot in U.S. history. If the winner goes with the one-time cash option they will receive nearly $905 million. The potential payout would be a record for the nation. It is now the largest drawing in US lottery history, slipping past a $1.586 billion Powerball drawing in 2016 that was shared among winners in California, Florida and Tennessee. The game's jackpot has now rolled for a few months and a total of 25 times, according to a release from Mega Millions.No one has won the Mega Millions jackpot since July 24, when a group of 11 workers in California split $543 million.
