They opted to take a cash option one-time payment of almost $878 million, making this the largest jackpot payout to a single victor in USA history.

The anonymous victor isn't the only one walking away from this with millions. In Michigan, 10,998 tickets sold won at least $4.

If no jackpot victor emerges from Tuesday night's drawing, the estimated annuity value for Friday, Oct. 19's drawing will increase to $868 million, with an estimated cash value of $495 million.

In 2016, there was a $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot, according to Reuters.

Players pick six numbers from two separate pools of numbers - five different numbers from 1 to 70 and one number from 1 to 25 - or select Easy Pick.

The estimated cash value, if you're lucky enough to match all six numbers, is $380 million.

Mega Millions is played in 44 states, plus the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands. Tickets cost $2 each.

· The next Lotto 47 drawing is also Saturday night, April 13 at 7:29 p.m. with a jackpot of $3.75 million. Deadline is 7:08 p.m. that day.

"Everyone is talking about the jackpot and running out to buy tickets for tonight's drawing", Gordon Medenica, Mega Millions lead director and Maryland Lottery and Gaming director, said in a press release.

The last victor for the top Mega Millions prize was on July 24, when a group of California office workers won the $543 million jackpot.

The drawing comes a week after a lucky player in MI won $1 million playing the Mega Millions.
