NY descended into Mega Millions mania on Monday, with hopefuls making a mad dash to snap up tickets ahead of Tuesday night's record $1.6 billion jackpot drawing. "I think more than one person should win".

"I would donate to kidney and breast-cancer research", Davis said. In comparison, the odds of getting killed by a shark are 1 in 3.7 million in a lifetime, according to the International Shark Attack File.

Mega Millions has already smashed its own jackpot record, which was $656 million, shared by winners in three states in March 2012.

It is the largest lottery prize in US history - which is bound to continue growing - and joins five other top 10 drawings in the last three years.

Players had a roughly one in 302.5 million chance of taking home the $1.6 billion pot.

Lottery fever continues to spread across Michiana in anticipation of Tuesday night's Mega Millions drawing. He said he just bought his ticket- only one!

"It's only two dollars. You know, mathematically speaking, every possible set of numbers could come out with the same chance, so it really doesn't matter", says Andrew Swift, the University of Nebraska Mathematician.

Powerball also has a major jackpot, as it is estimated at $620 million ahead of a Wednesday drawing. "When jackpots are this high, there is heightened interest not only in Mega Millions and Powerball, but in all other games as well". The games are played in 44 states, Washington, D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

"Mega Millions is not affiliated with and does not endorse any company claiming to sell our tickets around the world, online or otherwise", the website reads. The $1.6bn jackpot, the most ever given away in a U.S. lottery, would be enough to buy an National Football League team, the Washington Post and the most expensive home in NY and still have spare change to buy a few islands and private jets.

The winning numbers are 28, 70, 5, 62, 65.

You are more likely to get struck by lightning than win the jackpot, at least in the United States.
