After 80 Drawings, the Elusive Megabucks Jackpot Grows
June 24, 2011 - Salem, Ore. -
After 80 drawings, dating back to December 18, 2010, there has not been a Megabucks jackpot winner!
The current $17 million Megabucks jackpot for Saturday, June 25, ranks as the ninth largest Megabucks jackpot of all time.
The winner of the $17 million jackpot will have two options of claiming the prize. The annuity option, paid over 25 years, would give the winner yearly payments of over $455,000, after taxes. The one-time lump sum payment would be over $5.6 million, after taxes.
Megabucks, available only in Oregon, has drawings every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 7:29 PM. Players can buy Megabucks tickets at any Oregon Lottery retail location until just prior to the drawing on the night of the drawing.
The Lottery recommends that you always sign the back of your tickets with each Oregon Lottery game you play, to help ensure you can claim any prize you may win.
Results and additional details for Megabucks, Powerball, Mega Millions and all Oregon Lottery games can be found on the Lottery’s Web site at www.oregonlottery.org
Since the Oregon Lottery began selling tickets on April 25, 1985, it has earned over $7 billion for economic development, public education, state parks and watershed enhancements. For more information on the Oregon Lottery visit
