Nearly $1 Billion Up for Grabs with Powerball and Mega Millions Jackpot
The Mega Millions and Powerball both failed to produce a winner on Tuesday and Wednesday. So where does that leave us? A combined total of more than $950 million per News West 9. The winning numbers for Wednesday night’s drawing were 2, 18, 37, 39, 42, and the Powerball was 12.
The Powerball Jackpot will next hit $550 million and If that isn’t enough, the Mega Millions has their own large drawing this Friday with their jackpot estimate to be about $418 million. The odds of winning the Powerball are 1 in 292 million while the odds of winning the Mega Millions are 1 in 302 million. So it's still a long shot, to put it nicely.
The Powerball numbers are drawn at 9:59 p.m. CT every Wednesday and Saturday and the Mega Millions numbers are drawn at 10 p.m. CT every Tuesday and Friday.
The cost of a Powerball and Mega Millions ticket are $2.
If you plan on playing, good luck! And if you win, remember where you got this info! ;-)
