The ticketholder can take the money in annual increments or take a lump sum of $316.8 million before taxes, lottery officials said.

In August 2019, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey signed legislation that allowed jackpot winners of $100,000 or more to remain anonymous, KTVK reported.

Tuesday’s drawing marks the second time the Mega Millions jackpot has been won in 2020, lottery officials said.

The Mega Millions jackpot has been rolling over since a $202 million jackpot was won in New Jersey on Feb. 11.

The contest now resets to $20 million, and the next drawing is Friday.
