Tonight’s Mega Millions $1.1 Billion Jackpot is Up for Grabs! Are You in the Game?

January 10, 2023 – Will a CT Lottery Mega Millions player correctly match all six numbers tonight and claim the game’s third-highest Mega Millions jackpot to date? It’s possible—if you’re in the game!

The Mega Millions jackpot for Tuesday, Jan. 10, 2023, now stands at an estimated $1.1 billion with a cash option of $576.8 million. 

Tonight’s drawing will be the 24th since Mega Millions was last won on October 14, 2022, in Florida and California. It also marks the fourth time the game’s jackpot has passed $1 billion, and if won at this level it would be the fifth-largest lottery jackpot ever. 

While there has not ever been a CT Lottery Mega Millions jackpot-winner, Connecticut has had several recent high-prize Mega Million in 2021 (Wallingford).

Mega Millions costs $2 per wager. The Megaplier® feature costs an additional $1 per wager — it can multiply non-jackpot prizes by 2, 3, 4, or 5 times. On drawing nights (Tuesday and Friday), wagering closes at 10:45 PM and reopens at 11:15 PM. 

Jackpot winners may choose to receive their prize as an annuity in one immediate payment and annual graduated payments for 29 years, or a lump sum payment. The overall odds of winning a prize are 1 in 24. The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 302,575,350.
