If one were to match all five numbers and the mega number, which has the odds of 1 in 302 million, they would get to choose between a 30-year annuity or a cash payout.

The estimated $654 million total is the second-highest in the game's history. A victor who opted for a cash payout would receive $309 million, minus taxes. It is also one of the top ten largest jackpots in USA history.
