Mega Millions tickets are available in 45 states, Washington, DC, and the US Virgin Islands, with drawings taking place every Tuesday and Friday. Tickets are available for purchase online in Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, New Hampshire, North Carolina, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and DC, but the purchaser must be a resident of that state.

Before winning, Schultz said he didn't consider himself materialistic, so his most extravagant purchases were cars and real estate.

"I discovered, for myself and many others I've met and interviewed, that winning the lottery jackpot magnifies, or at least has the potential to magnify, your personality. It does not necessarily alter your identity "He stated.

He admitted that, while he no longer plays the lottery, he did purchase one ticket for Friday night's drawing.

Mega Millions jackpots begin at $20 million for the annuitized prize and grow based on game sales and 30-year US Treasury interest rates. The likelihood of winning the jackpot is one in 302,575,350.

There are seven other, less valuable prizes based on the number and type of balls matched by a ticket. If a ticket matches the five white balls but not the Mega Millions ball, the odds of winning a $1 million runner-up prize are 1 in 12,607,306.

"It can change pretty much everything," he said, "relationships, your ability to live a life." "I believe it can buy time, which can be extremely valuable. And, you know, it's one of the most bizarre life-changing events that can happen to someone."

He claims that working with a financial adviser will benefit people who have never won a million dollars because the adviser will help the winners understand what they can realistically do with the money.

He stated that after checking his numbers in the newspaper and realizing he had won, he made several calls to attorneys and financial advisers.

The jackpot on Friday was the lottery's second-largest prize in its 20-year history, with a cash value option of $742.2 million.

According to the lottery's website, the next drawing will be held on Tuesday at 11:00 p.m. ET.

The Mega Millions jackpot record is $1.537 billion, which was won in 2018 by a single ticket sold in South Carolina. According to Mega Millions, this is the world's largest lottery prize won by a single ticket, making it the second-largest jackpot for any US lottery game.

The largest jackpot in any US lottery game was $1.586 billion, won by winners in California, Florida, and Tennessee on January 13, 2016.

According to Timothy Schultz, who won the $28 million Powerball jackpot in 1999 and now hosts a lottery podcast, winning can "really turn your life on its head."
