The poor schmucks at MUSL really can't brag about it because they always hype the annuity value, but the cash value for Saturday's drawing is more than the previous record, which was advertised as $365 million. That $365 million figure was based on much higher interest rates and a cash value of about $177 million.  At $193.4 million Saturdays' cash value is almost 10% higher, even though the advertised amount is almost 20% less.

    The cash jackpot for next Wednesday will probably be a record US cash jackpot if it is not won on Saturday as well.  As far as I know, the record cash jackpot is $240 million, which is currently held by Mega Millions, when it had an annuity jackpot of $370 million.

      now they just need to be beat mm cash record of 240m cash

      gl with that pb, we need a 400m jackpot.

      also jackpot prize contribution will be 63.9512 cents per play , is helping here big time.


      why the odds are lower, jackpot reach's same level with half  number of tickets overall sold before,

        aka means less winners, so ofc where setting new cash records, we have to........ also thank god for that jackpot cap removed.

      now we go to 400m range if it can keep rollin. and we can try and beat mm

      right now MM has record by large amount, if pb keeps rollin, we can  hit 200m cash and maybe even take 240m cash record form it

      also this current 177m cash record is a lowball

      anytime jackpot gets this High, they always lowball the hell out of amount at first

      we reach 180m easy come draw time if not getting near 190m

      No bees, no honey.
