Although the all-time rollover record was the $1.586 billion US Powerball jackpot, the Mega Millions definitely gave it a run for its money in 2018 when it nearly smashed through the record reaching $1.537 billion.

What the Mega Millions did achieve, was the fact that the jackpot was won by a single ticket. This means that the Mega Millions holds the title of the largest single-ticket jackpot win in the world!
