Mega Millions, Powerball jackpots both top $350M, keep growing

Mega Millions, Powerball jackpots both top $350M, keep growing

If you decide to go for it, Mega Millions tickets will cost you $1 each.

Officials said in a press release that the jackpot is the fifth largest in the game's history.

There were no tickets sold with all six numbers in Wednesday evening's drawing of the multi-state Powerball lottery and the estimated jackpot for Saturday's drawing is expected to grow to $356 million. The Mega Millions drawing is televised every Tuesday and Friday at 11 p.m. on select Lottery draw stations.

Prizes are based on annuity options, paid over 29 years.

The Mega Millions lottery will have an estimated jackpot of $382 million, or $238 million with the cash option.

So, what are your odds of winning either of the two prizes?

Pennsylvania has sold 17 Powerball jackpot-winning tickets since 2002, and two jackpot-winning Mega Millions tickets since 2010. "Winning both jackpots is something fun to daydream about, but it's perhaps the ultimate long shot", said Iowa Lottery CEO Terry Rich. The Mega Million odds are slightly better - only 1 in 259 million. (1 quadrillion is a 1 followed by 15 zeros).
