Get Rich Fast: The Mega Millions Jackpot Exceeds Half a Billion Dollars

512 million dollars.

That’s the Mega Millions jackpot Tuesday night.

But did you know? Floridians have won two of the top ten largest Mega Millions jackpots — one in January and one in 2014.

If there is a winner Tuesday night, they could take away a total of $296 million after taxes.

Here is a map of some of the “luckiest” spots to buy a ticket in SWFL:

KEY:

  • Red — 1 ticket $600 and above ticket sold
  • Blue — 2 tickets $600 and above ticket sold
  • Yellow — 3 tickets $600 and above ticket sold
  • Green — 4 tickets $600 and above ticket sold
  • Purple — 5 tickets $600 and above ticket sold

Theoretically, if someone at the age of 35 wins and lives until 90, that means their annual income is more than $3.2 million a year.

So what are the top jackpots?

4. $533 million – New Jersey, March 2018
3. $536 million – Indiana, July 2016
2. $648 million  – California and Georgia, 2013
1. $656 million – Kansas, Illinois and Maryland, 2012

The drawing is 11 p.m. Tuesday night.
