Powerball, Mega Millions have $783M up for grabs to start new year
The Powerball and Mega Millions jackpots remain on the rise, with the jackpots approaching $800 million combined. Mega Millions has odds of one in 302.6 million and Powerball is slightly better at one in 292.2 million.
Both lotteries are played in multiple states, including California. It's the second time that Powerball and Mega Millions have had jackpots bigger than $300 million at the same time. 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 next Mega Millions drawing is Tuesday night, with that jackpot estimated at $343 million. Powerball hasn't had such a big prize since August, when a MA player won a $758.7 million jackpot. In August, an IL player won a $393 million jackpot. It has a $215 million cash option and the drawing is Tuesday evening.
