The jackpot got so big because there hasn’t been a winner for three months. Those 28 consecutive draws with no one matching all six numbers allowed the jackpot to gradually grow from its starting point of $20 million in April.

Mega Millions is played every Tuesday and Friday evening. Over the game’s 20-year history, 221 players have won the Mega Millions jackpot.
