The next Mega Millions drawing is Friday Dec. 29 with an estimated jackpot of $306 million and cash option of $191 million. Not long ago, Mega Millions changed the scope of numbers players can browsed, bringing down the chances of winning the jackpot to 1 out of 302.6 million.

The jackpots of two rival lotteries-the Powerball and Mega Millions-have each ballooned to more than $300 million, giving players two chances to win when drawings are held Friday and Saturday. Tickets for both games also may be purchased online at MichiganLottery.com.
