Mega Millions, Powerball jackpots reach almost $1 billion combined

Powerball jackpot grows to $345M after no one wins Saturday prize

Mega Millions lottery tickets rest on a counter at a Pilot travel center near Burlington, N.C., in 2016.

Tuesday's Mega Millions jackpot is approaching record territory, and it's not the only game offering huge payouts.

One "Match 5" victor was reported in Arkansas, according to the site.

The cash option on the Mega Millions prize is an estimated $372.6 million, while the cash option on the Powerball prize is an estimated $199 million.

Mega Millions Lottery forms are pictured at Ted's State Line Mobil in Methuen, Mass., July 24, 2018.

And Friday's Mega Millions wasn't a complete bust.

Believe it or not, this week's combined billion-dollar haul is not the biggest prize in the lottery's history.

The odds of matching all six numbers and becoming instantly wealthy are incredibly small- one in 302.5 million.

The winning numbers for the Friday, Oct. 12 drawing were: 04, 24, 46, 61 and 70. If those tickets were purchased with the Megaplier option, the prizes would be multiplied to $30,000.

Three other Mega Millions jackpots have been won this year: $451 million on January 5 (Florida), $533 million on March 30 (New Jersey) and $142 million on May 4 (Ohio).

That's when the next Powerball drawing is. Powerball reaches all those areas plus Puerto Rico. "It only takes one ticket to win".

"Jackpot fever is definitely sweeping the country!' Medenica said".
