The jackpot got so big because there hasn’t been a winner for three months. Those 28 consecutive draws, with no one matching all six numbers, have allowed the jackpot to grow gradually from its starting point of $20 million in April.

Mega Millions is played every Tuesday and Friday night. In the game’s 20-year history, 221 players have hit the Mega Millions jackpot.
