Mega Millions, Powerball Jackpots Total Almost $1 Billion

Powerball Jackpot Reaches $345 million

Powerball Jackpot Reaches $345 million

The estimated $654 million jackpot refers to the annuity option, paid out over 29 years.

Free Mega Millions tickets are available Tuesday ahead of one of the game's largest drawings.

Even before it rose, the Mega Millions jackpot - at a whopping $654 million when the day began - was still among the largest lottery prizes in US history.

The Powerball numbers drawn Saturday were 11-14-32-43-65 and the Powerball was 15.

Brunson , a native of North Carolina, worked as an evangelical Presbyterian pastor at the Izmir Resurrection Church. Andrew Brunson had the American government behind him.

"This increase reflects very strong sales of Mega Millions tickets here in Virginia and across the nation", a spokesperson for the Virginia Lottery said. "With a little luck, we may still break that record by Tuesday". The amount you will win is likely $0, because the odds of winning either jackpot are one in several hundred million. The next Mega Millions drawing will be Tuesday. The prize money was shared between ticket holders across multiple states with more than a billion tickets sold in that single drawing.

Fifty-five tickets matched four white balls plus the Mega Ball for the $10,000 third prize; seven of those are actually worth $30,000 each because they included the multiplier.

The Powerball jackpot is at an estimated $345 million for Wednesday's drawing, with a cash option of $199 million.

The next Powerball drawing will be held on Wednesday. "Jackpot fever is definitely sweeping the country!"
