The one-time cash payout is projected to increase to $250.7 million. (Estimated jackpot amounts are determined before taxes are withheld.)

“With the fifth-largest New Hampshire Mega Millions jackpot on record, the Mega Millions buzz is on the rise!” said Charlie McIntyre, executive director of the New Hampshire Lottery. “Whenever jackpots hit the $400 million mark, the excitement and sales really start to pick up and retailers are already reporting brisk sales for Friday’s drawing.

The largest Mega Millions jackpot in history was $656 million, which three winners from Kansas, Illinois and Maryland shared in March 2012. This current $421 million Mega Millions jackpot has been growing since January 5, when a lucky Florida player claimed a $451 million prize.
