BIGGEST Record LOTTERY Game JACKPOT hits $476 million

A record jackpot of $476 million is up for grabs in the Massachusetts Lottery's "Mega Millions" game.

Mega Millions is a multi-state lottery game. Massachusetts began participating in August of 1996, when the game was called, simply, "The Big Game". The name "Mega Millions" was adopted in June, 2005, according to the state lottery website.

The Bay State's biggest winner was Maria Grasso, a babysitter from Boston's Beacon Hill neighborhood, who claimed a $197 million jackpot in April, 1999.

  • I hope you don't throw your hard earned money away in hopes of winning this lottery.

    I'd hate to be the one who won your last two dollars.

    ;)

  • What gets me are the couch potatoes who, when the pot gets over a quarter-million, decide that *now* it's worth their while to play! As if a measly fifty million wouldn't make just as much of a difference in their lives!

    • @copperdog3 .. thats what always gets me the news reporting the odds of winning are ( insert number here ) odds of picking the winning numbers stays the same in every lottery draw only other people might pick the same numbers as you ...

    • @copperdog3 I can just see it now,some 80 yr old couple already financially well off winning it or maybe it'll be the guy that has already won the lottery like 3-4 times already.

  • I bought a few tickets. I definitely had the $3 to spare. Astronomically improbable odds? Sure. But, eventually, someone has to win. If I won this, everyone I know would have enough money to take care of themselves and their families.

    I've lost more than $3 to other peoples' couches in change. Why not try and make that crazy, almost-impossibly awesome?

    • @Foxxie
      Nothing at all wrong with that. You're not betting more than you can afford to lose. Its the other chumps betting their kids' lunch money that is disturbing. By the way, I bought into the hype as well. Hell. Somebody has to win, right?

  • I spent $1 on a ticket. It's only $1 and I know the odds of winning by spending $1 or $1,000 are virtually the same, so I see no point in spending/wasting any more.

    If I won I would spend it all, show the world how easy it is to "get off foreign oil" via algae and build a bunch of vertical algae farms (google it).
