The next Mega Millions drawing takes place on Tuesday, Oct. 23.

States have generally reported increased Mega Millions and Powerball sales since the change.

The victor might opt for the cash prize of more than $270 million, from which the federal government will take 25% right away, and more later.

Despite the poor odds, lotteries remain very popular among Americans, with the amount spent on lottery tickets each year varying widely from state to state.

The numbers have been drawn for Saturday's estimated $470 million Powerball jackpot.

The New Hampshire Lottery has sold more than $2.6 million in Mega Million tickets this week.

The Mega Millions jackpot has been growing since it was last hit on July 24, when a group of 11 co-workers in California shared a 543-million-dollar jackpot. On Thursday, the store sold about 1,100 tickets for the lottery, he said.

Google reveals details on Titan M chipset, present on Pixel 3 series
Impact: While this seems like a positive move from Verizon, it still remains to be seen how effective it will be in the long term. Sadly, this leaves the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL with an underwhelming score of just 4 out of 10.

That's right. Mega Millions "entered historic territory" Saturday after officials confirmed there were no winners for Friday's drawing.

Friday's prize is second only to a Powerball worth $1.5 billion that was won by 3 tickets on January 13, 2016.

But a note of caution - the chance of matching all six numbers and taking home the grand prize is one in 302.5 million.

Tickets cost $2 unless you opt for the "Megaplier", which raises the price to $3.

The Mega Millions numbers that could win an estimated $1 billion jackpot have been announced. If the victor goes with the one-time cash option they will receive almost $905 million. But don't get your hopes up too much.

The good news, you have another chance to win.
