Mega Millions Players Ponder How to Spend Record $1.6 Billion Prize

Nobody has won the Mega Millions prize since July 24 after a group of 11 workers in California split a $543 million prize.

The winning numbers are 16, 54, 57,62 and 69.

No information about the Knoxville victor is available until the prize is claimed.

There was no victor for Saturday's Powerball drawing and the new jackpot is estimated to be $620 million, the lottery announced on its website early Sunday.

But with Mega Millions at a United States record $1.6 billion, you could say Powerball's potential payout after Saturday's drawing is just a measly $476 million.

The next Mega Millions draw will be held on Tuesday.

Taiwan's national fire agency cited the cabinet spokesman's office as saying 18 people were killed and 160 injured. Soldiers have been removing bodies to identify them, he added, but nightfall was complicating rescue work.

The Mega Millions lottery jackpot has reached a record-breaking £1.26 billion ($1.6bn) after there was no victor of the £765 million ($1bn) prize.

The all-time largest lottery win was on January 13, 2016, when three tickets shared $1.586 billion in a Powerball drawing, CNBC reported.

The nation's largest lottery jackpots have now rolled for a few months.

In Florida and Tennessee, two people won $2 million, while seven others took home $1 million in seven other states including Indiana.

The 24 semi-weekly Mega Millions draws have failed to produce a top victor since July 24, when an 11-member office pool in Santa Clara County, California, hit a £415million ($543m) jackpot. But because the player added the Power Play for an extra $1, the prize is $2 million. The games are played in 44 states, Washington D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
