Cha-ching!! You could strike it rich this week, as there are two of chances to hit the jackpot with the Mega Millions & Powerball lottery.
This is the first time ever that both the Mega Millions & Powerball jackpots have reached over $300 million at the same time.
CBS Los Angeles reports in Tuesday night’s Mega Millions drawing there was a ticket sold in California that matched five of the six numbers and is worth just over $1 million. Since no one matched ALL six of the numbers, Friday’s prize will have an estimated total around $382 million. In the 15 year history of the game, this is the sixth biggest jackpot.
Don’t put your money all into one pot, because the Powerball’s prize is also a big one. The jackpot total for Wednesday’s Powerball is said to be worth an estimated $307 million, with a cash option that before taxes would be $193 million. Cha-ching!
