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.
The lottery pot is still growing this week, with almost a jackpot totaling $700 million across three different games. The last victor was on October 13, when two tickets split a $43 million jackpot.
What would you do if you won the $435 million Powerball jackpot? Powerball tickets may be purchased until 9:45 p.m. on Saturday. Players win $1 million if their Powerball ticket has coordinated the five numbers. Powerball, which changed its format several years ago, has odds of 1 in 292.2 million.
The move was similar to one made by Powerball in October 2015.
No one matched all winning numbers. The "Christmas" Powerball jackpot rolled over again - with no winners from Wednesday night, December 27. In this photo, a customer buys Powerball tickets at Kavanagh Liquor in San Lorenzo, California, Jan. 13, 2016.
