Mega Millions, Powerball lotteries soar with combined jackpots of nearly $2 billion

Mega Millions and Powerball have both racked up some serious jackpots after weeks of rollovers. 

The Mega Millions jackpot is at an estimated $1.1 billion ahead of Tuesday night’s drawing after no tickets matched Friday night. 

The jackpot has grown after 30 drawings without a jackpot winner, which was last won on Dec. 8, 2023 in California. This is only the sixth time in the nearly 22-year history of the Mega Millions game that the jackpot has been this large. 

The odds of winning the grand prize are 1 in 302,575,350, according to the game.

The largest Mega Millions jackpot won to date was in 2023 for 1.602 billion.

Saturday night's Powerball jackpot is estimated to be $800 million after no one matched all six numbers on Saturday, officials said.
