Mega Millions, Powerball Lottery Jackpots Near $1 Billion Combined

Powerball Jackpot Reaches $345 million

That amount makes the latest jackpot the second-largest prize in Mega Millions history, coming in just behind 2012's record-breaking $656 million jackpot.

It's the second biggest Mega Millions drawing ever, and the third biggest lottery jackpot in USA history.

If you don't have luck with the Mega millions, maybe you'll have better luck on Wednesday!

The lure of the $654 million jackpot drew players from across the state, including Joe Lang, pictured above, who purchased a ticket at Nina's Market in Lynn.

The Powerball numbers drawn Saturday were 11-14-32-43-65 and the Powerball was 15.

The drawing is scheduled to happen at 10 p.m. Tuesday.

Although the jackpot is massive, the odds of matching all six numbers and becoming instantly wealthy are remarkably small at one in 302.5 million.

At $667 million, someone holding a lone winning ticket would have the option of taking a cash payout of $380 million, according to the game's website.

The cash option on the Mega Millions prize is an estimated $372.6 million, while the cash option on the Powerball prize is an estimated $199 million.
