You Could Win €826.4 Million in American Lottery Prizes This Weekend!

The Friday Mega Millions jackpot has grown to $445 million. The Powerball top prize has skyrocketed to an estimated $550 million for Saturday's drawing- making it the eighth — largest lottery in U.S. history

Tonight's Mega Millions drawing is for a jackpot worth a $450 million annual annuity value or a $218.2 million cash prize, the Lottery says.

The Mega Millions jackpot is now $450 million and will be drawn right before the Channel 2 Action News Nightbeat at 11. In 2017, a Poughkeepsie couple won a $10 million cash scratch-off prize, the largest in New York Lottery history. That jackpot is now up to $550 million.

"I got two Mega Million and two Powerballs", said Farley.

In Pennsylvania, tickets for both games are sold until 9:59 p.m. on drawing nights. Despite the cold, the combined lottery jackpots of over $1 billion this weekend provided plenty of motivation to get out of the house.




The consortium of 44 states plus the Virgin Islands and the District of Columbia in October widened the odds for winning the big jackpot from 1 in 259 million to 1 in 303 million. Jackpots have reached rare-air territory for both widely played games.

Players everywhere are impressed by how easy it is to purchase official lottery tickets online and they have come to trust the purchasing services of theLotter. The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased at a 7-Eleven in Port Richey, Florida. That's because there are now longer odds in both games, leading to less frequent jackpot winners and thus more frequent large jackpots.

"You never can tell which one's going to win", said Wesley Davis.

I'm one of those occasional buyers bit by Mega Millions mania. It also raised the price of a single ticket to $2. WGN reports that the larger jackpots are, the more sales skyrocket. And Americans do love buying lottery tickets.
