Powerball, Mega Millions jackpots climb over $300M

Lottery players in MA have their chance at winning almost $700 million in lottery jackpots this weekend!

All things considered, the situation is anything but favorable for players now that the two lotteries have harder chances for their separate jackpots. The $300 million prize does not rank among the top 10 Powerball drawings.

The switch additionally knock up the beginning "ensured" bonanza from $15 million to $40 million. Mega Millions tickets are sold in 43 states plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The cost of a Powerball ticket is $2. Powerball tickets may be purchased until 9:45 p.m. on Saturday. Right now, the Mega Millions and Powerball lotteries have a combined jackpot of almost $700 million. But even the $2 prize has longer odds, at 1 in 37, than it used to.

Mega Millions players can pick six numbers from two separate pools of numbers-five distinct numbers from 1 to 70 and one number from 1 to 25-as indicated by the diversion's tenets. Players select five white numbers from (1 to 69) and one red ball (1 to 26).

As for Mega Millions, that lottery drawing will have at least a $306 million jackpot for its Friday night drawing.

The Powerball game has a comparative arrangement.

The move was similar to one made by Powerball in October 2015.

The winning numbers for Wednesday's Powerball for the grand prize of $337 million are 3, 9, 16, 56, 60 and the Powerball is 3. California resident Jeff Lindsay claimed the winning Powerball ticket June 10 and received an annuity of $447.8 million.

Wednesday's Powerball Jackpot was the 17th largest in the lottery's history, with the largest being $1.586 billion.

Players also have another chance to be a millionaire: the in-state Megabucks Doubler game, which will be drawn at 11:20 p.m. on Saturday, sits at an estimated $7.9 million.
