Powerball, Mega Millions jackpots almost $800 million combined; Ohio Lottery results

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

The Mega Millions jackpot is no slouch, either.

There were also 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.

The in-state Megabucks Doubler jackpot on Wednesday is about $8 million, or a $6.36 million cash option.

Classic Lotto's jackpot has increased to a relatively modest $26.3 million after no tickets matched Monday's winning numbers of 13-16-22-28-39-45 Kicker 118639.

Tuesday night's Mega Millions jackpot sits at $361 million.

Colts officially part ways with head coach Chuck Pagano
The Indianapolis Colts are expected to fire head coach Chuck Pagano , according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. As a result, his CHUCKSTRONG Foundation has raised millions for cancer research.

Lottery officials said six Mega Million jackpots were won in 2017.

Increasing jackpots with no winning tickets drawn continue to attract new players with Powerball and Mega Millions lotteries both topping the $300 million mark.

Mega Millions and Powerball tickets are $2 per play.

Tuesday's drawing will be the 22nd since the last winning ticket was sold on October 13. Multipliers are available in all states offering the games except California, which bans the type of fixed prize payouts awarded by multipliers.

The drawing is at 10 p.m. today.

There was also no victor in Saturday night's Powerball drawing, which puts Wednesday night's jackpot at about $440 million.
