Mega Millions & Powerball Hit Combined $2 Billion Jackpot

Mega Millions Lotto Ticket Processed by Machine

Mega Millions tickets cost $2 each, or $3 for Mega Millions tickets with Megaplier, an option that can increase non-jackpot winnings by two, three, four or five times.

And speaking of Powerball: That game's next drawing is Wednesday, for an estimated jackpot of $620 million.

The Kansas Lottery encourages players to check their tickets after each drawing and claim prizes promptly.

As the Mega Millions jackpot eclipsed $1.6 billion, potential 1 percenters around the country converged on their local gas stations, all hoping to snag the largest jackpot ever. But by Tuesday night's drawing, officials estimate that 75 percent will be sold.

This jackpot is the largest lottery prize so far in US history, but what do you do if you win? Several states allow online ticket purchases, but they prohibit out-of-state and foreign purchases.

That's the value if the victor or winners select annuity payments.

The odds of winning Powerball are 1 in 292.2 million.

How can I receive the money if I win? That's the highest lottery jackpot in US history!

The base prize for matching the five white numbers drawn is $1 million.

It also surpassed the almost $1.6 billion Powerball jackpot that previously held the record.

The winning numbers were 5, 28, 62, 65, 70 and Mega Ball 5. What numbers have come up most?

Based on the projected payout schedule for tomorrow's prize, that interest rate now sits around 3.45 percent, up from 2.84 percent when I examined the big Powerball prize for the New York Times almost three years ago.
