₦ 105 billion jackpot is up for grabs in US Mega Millions this Friday; Nigerians can play the draw online


The higher the jackpot, the greater the interest in playing the world’s most popular lottery. Here is how you can get official Mega Millions tickets online from your home in Nigeria.


It seems that everyone wants to play the US Mega Millions lottery these days and this is easy to understand. Mega Millions has been a household name across the globe ever since it awarded a record US$1.5 billion jackpot in October 2018.

This week, Mega Millions is offering a US$277 million jackpot (equivalent to ₦ 105 billion) and the draw will take place on April, 23 April 2021. While not yet a new world record, the $277 million jackpot makes other lottery prizes pale in comparison.

If there are no winners of the Mega Millions jackpot in the upcoming draw, the prize money will roll over and the jackpot will continue to grow. Adrian Cooremans, theLotter’s spokesman, shares: “In January this year, lottery fans across the globe held their breath when it seemed the Mega Millions jackpot was on track to break its all-time record of US$1.58 billion. In the end, a US$730 million jackpot was won on 20 January 2021 by a single ticket purchased in Maryland.”

Cooremans adds: “Who knows how high the current jackpot will grow? On the other hand, the US$277 million prize could be won in this week’s draw.”

Until now, residents of Nigeria may have been jealous of American lottery fans, who could purchase Mega Millions tickets in person. Luckily, there is no need for you to travel to the United States to purchase tickets. You, too, can participate in Mega Millions draws by playing online with theLotter, the leading lottery ticket messenger service in the world.
