  • Players have chance at winning giant Mega Millions, Powerball jackpots

The Mega Millions jackpot for tonight's drawing is up to $363 million.

On Wednesday night, the Powerball jackpot offers a prize of $440 million. Either way, it's a ton of money. Revamps to the country's two big lottery games in recent years decreased the odds of picking all the numbers needed for the top prize, though officials point out it has increased the number of winners who score smaller prizes that range from $1 million to $5 million, depending on the game.

The drawing is at 10 p.m. today. The Powerball jackpot is $440 million, and Mega Millions is up to $343 million. The biggest Mega Millions jackpot dates back to 2012 when three winners split $656 million.




"Some are playing just the Powerball because it has the highest jackpot, but most appear to be getting at least one ticket for both", Maloney added. In the wake of his successful prize collection in OR, theLotter established a large operation in that state from which it safely and securely purchases its clients' U.S. lottery tickets! Most recently, theLotter has helped create lottery millionaires in Canada, El Salvador, Russia, Ukraine & Australia, and a Panamanian pensioner won $30 million in a USA lottery! This is remarkable because it was a year when United States jackpots were much lower - remember that in 2016 Powerball set a $2 billion Cdn. jackpot record!

At no time in history have two US jackpots been simultaneously greater than $400 million, but that milestone may be reached if the games roll another drawing or two.

But that didn't stop people from buying tickets to both games in recent days. No ticket won all six numbers in Friday night's drawing.
