The Mega Millions jackpot for the Tuesday night draw has soared to $1.55billion – the largest in its history.

It comes after no ticket matched all six numbers drawn on Friday night.
There has now not been a Mega Millions jackpot winner for nearly four months, since April 18.

Tuesday night’s jackpot could also be the third-largest overall in US lottery history.

The odds of winning tonight’s Mega Millions jackpot is about 1 in 302.6million. Those odds are worse than the 1 in 11.5million odds of being bitten by a shark or the 1 in 700,000 odds of giving birth to identical quadruplets. 

One lottery ticket vendor in Ohio  the unprecedented jackpot had caused sales to more than quadruple.

‘They spend a lot of money right now because of the highest amount,’ said Mohamad Ramzeen, owner of Madison Quickstop.

‘When the lotteries go up, especially the Powerball and Mega, people are playing a lot,’ Ramzeen said.

‘So everyone’s trying. Everyone needs money, right?’ 

Mark Glickman, a senior statistics lecturer at Harvard, that although nothing can be done to increase the outright chances of winning the jackpot, measures can be taken to maximize the size of winnings in case you win.

‘Even though you cannot on a single drawing improve your chances, what you can do is invoke a strategy that actually increases your chance of not sharing your prize fund,’ said Glickman.

‘Rather than picking common numbers or patterns on tickets, what you should actually be doing is you should be taking random numbers,’ he said.

‘You should just completely have pattern-less random numbers, no birthdays that have special meaning to you, because other people are likely to make those same picks,’ he said.
