Powerball, Mega Millions have $783M up for grabs to start new year
Between the Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots, $801 million is up for grabs. Mega millions made a change in October, giving you more numbers to choose from - and making it harder to win.
Whether you're a lottery player ot not, you might want to buy some tickets.
Mega Millions' next drawing is scheduled for Tuesday evening, and Powerball's for Wednesday evening. Furthermore, since theLotter stores clients' tickets in OR, it abides by the US Immoral Acts Law, which stipulates that one is "prohibited from importing into the United States from any foreign country any lottery ticket".
The highest all-time Mega Millions jackpot was $656 million, claimed by one person in 2012. This is remarkable because it was a year when USA jackpots were much lower - remember that in 2016 Powerball set a $2 billion Cdn. jackpot record!
The two biggest lottery games are both offering eye-popping jackpots to kick off 2018.
At no time in history have two USA jackpots been simultaneously greater than $400 million, but that milestone may be reached if the games roll another drawing or two. The numbers drawn were: 4 - 10 - 18 - 28 - 62, MB 7 Megaplier 2X. The drawing for Powerball is Wednesday night.
This week they'll also be putting cash down on the Mega Millions for a jackpot that has soared to $343 million, the eight largest in Mega Millions history.
