The Kansas Lottery said the Mega Millions drawing has been raised from $502 million to $521 million, the fourth largest in the game’s history and tenth largest in U.S. lottery history.
Friday’s drawing will be six years to the day since the largest-ever Mega Millions jackpot was won on March 30, 2012. Three winning tickets – sold in Kansas, Illinois and Maryland – split a $656 million jackpot. The Kansas winner was from Franklin County.
The last Mega Millions jackpot hit was $451 million in Florida on January 5, 2018.
