Tonight's Mega Millions jackpot is worth a whopping 970-million-dollars and sales are brisk.
People in 44 states are dreaming about what they’d do with that kind of money, but first they have to win it. So what are the most common numbers drawn in Mega Millions? We’ve got them! In order of most drawn they are:
2, 17, 31, 39, 4, 46, 29, 5, 20, 35. Each of these numbers has been drawn over 200 times.
Lottery officials say the prize amount crossed over the 900-million mark due to "brisk sales" across the country. Winners can take the cash option, which would now be 548-million-dollars, or an annuity, with one initial payment and annual installments over 29 years. If you don't strike it rich with Mega Millions, there's always the Powerball. Saturday's drawing is worth 430 million.
By the way, experts say you should do three things if you win: keep it a secret, skip the cash option, and get a financial planner.
Good luck!Source: ABC Albany
