#megamillions Mega Millions jackpot surges to $521 million!

March 29th, 2018

RELEASE DATE: 3/30/2018

In advance of a holiday weekend, strong sales have pushed the March 30 Mega Millions jackpot to an estimated $521 million ($317 million cash)! If won, it would be the fourth largest jackpot in the history of the game, and the largest since a $536 million prize was won in Indiana on July 8, 2016.

Exactly six years ago, on March 30, 2012, the largest Mega Millions jackpot in history was won – a $656 million prize shared by winners in Illinois, Kansas and Maryland.

The jackpot has been rolling since it was last won on January 5 at $451 million; a 20-year-old Florida man claimed that prize as the trustee of Secret 007, LLC.
