9th largest Powerball jackpot up for grabs

9th largest Powerball jackpot up for grabs Powerball, Mega Millions have $783M up for grabs to start new year

If you play the lottery then 2018 could be your lucky year. Furthermore, since theLotter stores clients' tickets in OR, it abides by the US Immoral Acts Law, which stipulates that one is "prohibited from importing into the United States from any foreign country any lottery ticket". The biggest Mega Millions jackpot dates back to 2012 when three winners split $656 million.

Mega Millions made a chance in October, giving you more numbers to choose from and making it harder to hit the jackpot.

Mega Millions rolled over to a $343 million jackpot after no one had a winning ticket Friday night, though one Florida lottery player matched five numbers to collect a $1 million prize. The cash value of the January 3 Powerball drawing will be $278.3 million. Tickets for that game are also $2. Six Mega Millions jackpots were won in 2017.

More news: Powerball jackpot at $384M for Saturday drawing

Powerball draws on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10:59 p.m.

Indeed, Business Insider looked at the similarly large jackpots before last weekend's drawings and concluded that, even though the headline prizes are getting pretty big, the math suggests buying a ticket is not a winning bet. That's more than they spent on movies, video games, music, sports tickets and books - combined.
