Tuesday night’s Mega Millions lottery jackpot for July 26, 2022 is worth an estimated $810 million. When will you find out if someone has won the jackpot? This will keep you up to date on whether someone has won or not.

How long it takes to get the results of a Mega Millions draw often depends on how many people played. The bigger a jackpot gets, the longer it takes to know the results. So if you played back when the jackpot was a lot smaller, you might have known if someone won a lot quicker than you did tonight.

The drawing takes place every Tuesday and Friday at 11:00 p.m. Eastern Time. If it takes about two hours after a draw to find out if someone has won, that means the results are usually announced by 1am. So you can expect to know if anyone has won between 12:00 and 1:00 ET tonight.

Please note that it is important to know if someone has won Not the same as knowing the winning numbers. Jackpot winning numbers are announced during the draw at 11:00pm Eastern Time. After that, however, it takes a while to process all the tickets and find out if anyone in a participating state has won the jackpot.

In fact, sometimes when drawings get very large, it can take quite a long time to return the results. For example, in December 2019, the $340 million draw results were not announced until 2 a.m. when participants learned that no one had won the big jackpot. Sometimes it takes even longer.

How can you stay up to date to know if someone has won?

The most reliable and often fastest way is to visit the Mega Millions website. When a winning jackpot ticket is sold, Mega Millions will update their website to show that the jackpot starts at $20 million.

Until then, the Mega Millions website will state that the estimated jackpot for the next drawing is “pending”. If no one wins, the estimated jackpot will increase from the current $810 million.

In order to win the jackpot, you need to get all five white balls right and the yellow megaball.

The odds of winning Mega Millions are 1 in 302.5 million.

Today’s jackpot is worth $810 million. The cash option, if the winner chooses it, is $470.1 million (that’s how much it’s worth when taken in one go before taxes).

The final jackpot amount awarded often does not exactly match the advertised amount. Mega Millions explains that this is because “although based on trends and historical patterns, [the totals] are still estimates. When jackpots get extremely large, there is little precedent to base the estimates on. Typically, up to 70% of sales occur on draw day, so exact numbers can be difficult to predict in advance and can be affected by external factors such as the weather. Changes in both US Treasury sales and price explain why advertised jackpot amounts are always estimates. In the past, actual winning jackpots have come in roughly similar proportions at levels above, below, and equal to the estimated numbers. And regardless of whether a player who wins the jackpot chooses the cash value or annuity option, they will receive the available jackpot based on actual sales, which may vary from the estimated jackpot.”
