Mega Millions jackpot tops $400 million tonight

Mega Millions has entered the “giant jackpot” zone, with an estimated $400 million jackpot up for grabs in the March 18 drawing. It’s the third largest Mega Millions jackpot ever.

The cash option on the jackpot is an estimated $224.8 million. If the jackpot was won by one ticket sold in Kansas, and the winner chose the cash option, the winner would receive $157.36 million, after federal and state income withholding taxes were paid. State withholding taxes on the prize would be an estimated $11.24 million.

The Mega Millions jackpot was last hit on Jan. 3, 2014, when a ticket in Tennessee matched all numbers and won $61 million.  March 18 will be the 21st drawing since then.

The largest Mega Millions jackpot ever was $656 million, shared by players in three states, including Kansas. The Kansas winning ticket was sold in Ottawa for the March 30, 2012, drawing.

Powerball currently is at $80 million.


Resident’s ‘bucket list’ request granted

She received a limousine ride to the restaurant on March 12, and she also attended a concert at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. She and other residents also were entertained by magician T.A. Hamilton. Several businesses donated services toward this event, including Kincaid Bus, Outback Steakhouse, magician T.A. Hamilton, Kauffman Center, and Personal Care Transportation and Services. (Photos by Susan Whitaker, marketing director, Delaware Highlands Assisted Living)
