Friday night’s Mega Millions lottery jackpot for July 29, 2022 has an estimated value of $1.1 billion. With such a historic crowd in play, you can guarantee that an unprecedented number of players will be playing too. When can you find out if someone won the jackpot? This will keep you up to date on whether someone has won or not.

Unfortunately, we don’t immediately know if anyone has won the big Mega Millions jackpot. (And occasionally it can even be more than one person!)

How long it takes after the 11pm draw to find out if someone has won the jackpot usually depends on how many people have 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.

And with all the hype surrounding the billion-dollar prize, we could potentially wait a long time before we hear the final results.

The Mega Million lottery drawing takes place every Tuesday and Friday at 11:00pm 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 between 12:00 a.m. and 1:00 a.m. EST. But it could be much later. In Tuesday’s lottery, we didn’t find out until after 1am that nobody had won. So if you have an early day, it might be better if you go to bed in the morning and wait for the news.

Remember: knowing if someone 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. But you can immediately know if she won the jackpot.

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 $1.1 billion. So if you check the website you will see the estimated jackpot for Tuesday greater than $1.1 billion, that means nobody won.

On Tuesday night, the Mega Millions website crashed shortly after the draw and remained inactive for quite a while, Heavy reported here.

When visiting Heavy, the website displayed “Error 524: A timeout has occurred”. The error page states: “The connection to the origin web server was established, but the origin web server timed out before responding. The likely cause is an overloaded background task, database, or application consuming resources on your web server.”

Others reported seeing an Error 1016 or “Origin DNS Error”. This message read: “You have requested a page on a website hosted on the Cloudflare network… Cloudflare is currently unable to resolve your requested domain.”

Others got a 522 error, saying the connection timed out.

In other words, so many people were visiting the site at once that it crashed.

So what if that happens again?

If so, you can also check the LotteryHUB app and website. In 2014, MegaMillions reported that LotteryHUB was the official app of Powerball and Mega Millions. So this is the best choice when the official website is not available. LotteryHUB works similarly to the main site, listing results as “pending” when it is not known if someone has won. It will reset the lottery amount if someone won and show the increased amount for Tuesday if nobody won.

Another app that provides updates is the MMPB app.

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 $1.1 billion. The cash option is $648.2 million (that’s how much it’s worth if taken all at once before taxes). These amounts can change depending on how many people are playing.

The final jackpot amount awarded often does not exactly match the advertised amount.
