  • Mega Millions $900M, Powerball $430M Jackpots Await This Weekend

While this insane total is easily enough to make it the highest Mega Millions jackpot ever, it would not be the biggest lottery grand prize in US history.

Lottery players will have slightly better odds of winning just one of the jackpots.

Do not respond the emails, officials say.

A ticket in Lexington for last night's Powerball won the game's second prize of $1 million. The next drawing is Friday.

The last time somebody hit the Mega Millions was July 24, when an office pool in Silicon Valley won the $543 million jackpot.

The chance of winning jumped from 1 in roughly 258 million to 1 in 302 million this drawing.

Close to $1 billion are on the table in the record-breaking Mega Millions jackpot in the final hours before the Friday evening drawing.

If a player is lucky enough to win, Uniondale lawyer Jason Kurland, who has worked with 30 lottery winners, has some advice for would-be lotto winners.

At the Smithfield News in Downtown Pittsburgh, there was a steady stream of lottery ticket buyers.

The next Powerball drawing is at 11 p.m. EST Saturday. As of Thursday afternoon, the Mega Millions jackpot stood at just under $1 billion - $970 million, to be precise. You can pick your own numbers or the computer will do it for you.

For an additional $1 you can get a "Megaplier" ticket that will increase the amount of the smaller prizes, but not the grand prize.

Here's how Mega Millions used to work: Players picked five numbers from 1 to 75 and a Mega number from 1 to 15. When the jackpots flirt with the half-billion-dollar mark, state lotteries don't even feel the need to advertise, he said.

If you haven't bought a ticket, there's still time.

In June 2009, a then 27-year-old Kings Mountain resident Jeff Wilson's life changed when the Powerball ticket given to him by his father matched all six numbers, winning him the $88.1 million prize.
