One Lucky Player Could Win $372 Million, the Third-Highest in 2019!
PHOENIX (December 16, 2019) – Could there be a better gift this holiday season than a Mega Millions jackpot? Forget the sugar-plums, with $372 million up for grabs, Tuesday, players will be dreaming of finding a pile of money under the tree. It’s enough to put a smile on even the Grinch’s face.
“The Holidays are a magical time, filled with joy and wonder,” said Gregg Edgar, Arizona Lottery Executive Director. “What could fill your holiday with more joy or wonder than winning the third-largest jackpot of the year? Come play with us and add a little excitement to your holiday celebration."
A jackpot winner in Tuesday’s drawing would have the choice between an estimated annuity value of $372 million, or the estimated lump-sum cash value of $251.6 million (before taxes).
Arizona Lottery ticket sales fund more than a dozen vital programs across our state, including higher education infrastructure built and maintained by the Board of Regents, habitat purchased through the Heritage Fund to protect and promote our unique and iconic wildlife, and the Court Appointed Special Advocates, or CASA, speaking in court for abused and neglected children. These are just a few of the 18 beneficiaries that receive hundreds of millions of Lottery dollars every year.
Mega Millions drawings are held Tuesdays and Fridays at 11 p.m. ET. Tickets are $2 and are sold in 44 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Players can add the Megaplier option for an additional $1, which multiplies all prizes except for the jackpot. For more information, visit megamillions.com.
