The Mega Millions jackpot available to win in tonight’s draw is estimated at $363 million.

This Mega Millions jackpot is not only the highest it’s been for this year but also the highest Mega Millions jackpot for over a year.

In this particular draw two winning tickets from Idaho and Washington matched the numbers drawn to each win $190 million.

Even though this Mega Millions jackpot on offer to win tonight is impressive it is not actually the biggest ever top prize won in this American lottery.
