Twitter users calculated the Mega Millions jackpot's value after taxes.

The meagre after-tax payout of the Mega Millions jackpot was assessed by investors and financial experts on Twitter.

The top reward for the Mega Millions drawing on Tuesday night jumped to $1.35 billion.

It was because there was no declared winner.

The honour is the second-largest prize in recorded history.

According to one investor, the IRS would probably get "at least $200 million instantaneously" if the winner cashed out.

TikTok star Kyland Young warned people not to play the lottery this year.
