Des Moonis, Iowa (AP) – The second chance for lottery players to win big – really big – this weekend comes Saturday for the $ 640 million Powerball Top Prize, the eighth-largest jackpot.
The chances of winning are one in 292.2 million.
No one defeated for Friday’s top prize of $ 750 Mega Millions. The fifth largest jackfruit is now projected to grow to $ 850 million, which will be the third largest by far. The next Mega Millions drawing is Tuesday.
It had been almost two years since the lottery jackpot had become so large. No one has won the game’s top award in months.
Listed jackpot amounts refer to winners who select annuities that are paid over 30 years. Winners almost always choose a cash prize, which will be $ 478.7 million for Powerball. The estimated cash prize for the next Mega Millions jackpot is $ 628.2 million.
Both Mega Millions and Powerballs are played in 45 states as well as Washington, DC and the US Virgin Islands. Powerball is also offered in Puerto Rico.
