Mega Millions is also a multistate lottery and one of America's two biggest lottery jackpot games.

As lottery fever sizzles over a new record-setting Mega Millions jackpot and a whopper of a Powerball prize, you should know our region has produced some massive lottery winners in recent years.

According to a release from Mega Millions, the last Mega Millions jackpot was won July 24, netting 11 co-workers a combined $543 million.

Although the Mega Millions prize has grown larger, the odds of winning remain the same at one in 302.5 million.

An anonymous Mega Millions player who bought a ticket in La Plata, Maryland, in 2014, won a $207 million jackpot.

The $667 million jackpot refers to the annuity option, paid out over 29 years.

California Lottery officials announced that near matching ticket was sold in San Francisco shortly before 9:15 p.m.

The immediate cash value of the Mega Millions prize, which winners can opt to take, is $494.5 million.

Lottery tickets are sold at $2 each in kiosks, supermarkets and gas stations in 44 USA states, the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands.

Now, there's more than a billion dollars up for grabs between the Mega Millions and the Power Ball drawing.

Wednesday, the winning numbers for the $345-million Powerball jackpot prize will be drawn.
