The Mega Millions jackpot has soared to an estimated $1.55 billion ($757.2 million cash value) after no players matched all six numbers in the $1.35 billion drawing on Friday, August 4.

The numbers drawn were 11-30-45-52-56, with a Gold Ball of 20 and a Megaplier of 2x. This rollover continues a streak of growing prizes, with the jackpot having reset multiple times this year, including one player in Maine winning the estimated $1.35 billion drawing on January 14, the second-highest in the game’s history.

The Mega Millions jackpot has exceeded the billion mark five times since its inception. In October 2018, a ticket sold in South Carolina won $1.537 billion ($878 million cash value), the world’s largest jackpot and cash value for a single ticket.

Additionally, Mega Millions and Powerball games had offered a combined jackpot of over $1.7 billion in 2021, underscoring the substantial sums at stake in these games. Both jackpots continue to grow with each game until a winning ticket is drawn, adding to the excitement and anticipation for lottery players. The next drawing for Mega Millions is set for Tuesday, August 8.
