Powerball and Mega Millions jackpots now total $801 million

Powerball and Mega Millions jackpots now total $801 million”

For only the second time in history, USA lottery players have two opportunities to try for jackpots exceeding $300 million.

Despite bitter cold temperatures, lottery players are flocking to places around the Tri-State region to get the hottest tickets around - Powerball and Mega Millions.

Lottery players have a chance at winning two giant jackpots this week that together amount to more than $800 million. The cash value of the January 2 Mega Millions drawing will be $225 million.

The Mega Millions jackpot for Tuesday's drawing is now up to $363 million.

Math still suggests buying a lottery ticket is a losing bet.

There were no winners in Saturday night's Powerball drawing, so the grand prize in that game has now reached $440 million ahead of another drawing Wednesday.

Large jackpots are more common than they used to be. Powerball hasn't had such a big prize since August, when a MA player won a $758.7 million jackpot.

Today could be your lucky day and 2018 could turn into the best year of your life. That took the odds of winning that game from 1 in 175 million to 1 in 292 million. Friday night's Mega Millions numbers are: 4-10-18-28-62, Mega Ball: 7, Megaplier: 2The next drawing is Tuesday night.

Tickets for both games sell for $2.
