  • 20, 31, MB 17 (Debuted April 12, 2022)

While Mega Millions currently has the smallest jackpot, it won’t take much to overtake Lotto Texas for the #2 spot. There are two Lotto Texas/Powerball drawings before Tuesday. It may be that Mega Millions overtakes Lotto Texas, or even ends up having the largest jackpot! Everything now hinges on what those two lotteries have up their sleeves.
