Powerball, Mega Millions jackpots both top $300 million

Wealth


Would-be millionaires now have two opportunities to try for jackpots of more than $300 million.

The Mega Millions jackpot is now $346 million, and the Powerball jackpot, $307 million, after weekend drawings for both games failed to yield winners for the top prizes. (The next Mega Millions drawing is at 11 p.m. ET on Tuesday; Powerball, 10:59 p.m. ET on Wednesday.)

If the prize amount doesn’t go up, the Mega Millions jackpot would be the seventh largest in the game’s history.

The most recent big Mega Millions win — $536 million in July 2016 — was the third-largest in the game’s history, and seventh largest in any U.S. lottery. It was the most ever awarded to a single Mega Millions winner and the highest cash-value jackpot awarded to a single winner in a U.S. lottery.
