BOTH Powerball and Mega Million jackpots top $300 million

Powerball jackpot continues to rise

It has been seven years since every state lottery in the USA began selling Powerball and Mega Millions tickets, but both games have never offered payouts of this size at the same time. This is the sixth largest jackpot in the game's history.

The next Mega Millions drawing is at 11 p.m. on Friday; Powerball, 10:59 p.m. on Saturday.

With Powerball and Mega Millions both topping $350M, it seems like a great time to check out our Staten Island Lottery Winners and Dreamers YouTube playlist.

There were no jackpot winners Wednesday night, so the Powerball is now up to an estimated $356 million.

The June rate of 2.65 mishandled bags was worse than 2.32 in May, but better than 2.82 for the same month a year earlier. From January to June 2017, complaints went up 7.8 percent from the number received during the first six months of 2016.

If you don't like those odds, or even the odds of winning one of them, Hot Lotto even has a "tell your boss what you think of them" $9.26 million jackpot. Your odds are slightly better if you play Mega Millions: about one in 258 million.

According to Allstate's data science team - about 1 in 75 quadrillion.

"Winning both jackpots is something fun to daydream about, but it's perhaps the ultimate long shot", Iowa Lottery CEO Terry Rich said.
