You probably can't, but unfortunately, you probably also won't get the chance to, especially if you're shooting for the moon and hoping to win both the Powerball and the Mega Millions.

"When the jackpots reach these levels, everyone starts to daydream about what they would do if they won", Gordon Medenica, Mega Millions lead director, said in a statement. It's a 1 in 12,607,306 shot to win the second prize of at least $1 million by matching five numbers. Players now pick numbers from 1 to 70 and a Mega number between 1 and 25.

Both games are played in 44 states plus Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Eurozone Factory Growth At Record High
China's manufacturing sector continued to expand in December, pointing to economic resilience in the country's factory sector. China's slowdown means that for the rest of Asia, the pace of rate increases is unlikely to match that of the U.S.

The Mega Millions jackpot is the 4th largest in that game's history. Three tickets - sold in Illinois, Maryland and Kansas - split a $656 million prize. Two ticket holders - one in Rhode Island, the other in MI, split a $42 million prize. The odds of winning the Mega Millions jackpot is only one-in-around-302 million.
