Since the claim of the last jackpot prize in June of 2021, over 14.5 million tickets have managed to win different prizes but none has managed to win the jackpot.
Now the stakes are very high as more and more players will participate in the upcoming September 14, 2021 draw. The prize money for the upcoming draw is $383 million, which is close to $400 million. This time, there are high chances that someone will win the jackpot prize.
