Mega Millions Lottery Jackpot Betting Odds with Props Predictions
Mega Millions fever is on the minds of everybody in the USA as people are waiting in line for hours just to purchase tickets for the record-breaking $1.6 Billion Mega Millions jackpot. Yes, I said billion with a 'B'! Mega Millions now stands as the largest jackpot in U.S. history, and if trends continue to be up to plate we could see this number continue to rise.
This Tuesday night at 11 p.m. EST is the next drawing for Mega Millions, and if you do have the only winning ticket and you want the money in a lump sum you can opt for the cash option of about $905 million. The odds for winning on Tuesday night are about 1 in 302 million. So to put it in perspective, the odds on getting attacked by a shark are 1 in 3.7 million.
Why have lottery jackpots gotten so big lately? That is the $1 million question, but the answer is pretty easy. Lottery officials began tinkering with the odds in 2015 to lessen the chance of winning a jackpot, which in turn increased the opportunity for top prizes to reach unbelievable dollar amounts. Mega Millions started to tinker with their odds, and in October 2017 they worsened their odds from 1 in 259 million to 1 in 302 million. Mega Millions was also smart to double their entry ticket price from $1 to $2, and we have seen three of the six largest payouts as a result.
Why wait in line for a Mega Millions lottery ticket when you can wager on the outcome of the Mega Millions lottery? MyBookie, one of the biggest online sports books in the world, was the only book to post Mega Millions betting propositions. Yes, you can bet from how many winners will have the winning ticket or which state will have the winning ticket.
