MEGA MILLIONS JACKPOT SOARS FOR OVER HALF A BILLION DOLLARS

The Powerball prize draw comes just a day after no one won a $ 625 million Mega Millions jackpot, causing this prize to grow to $ 750 million ahead of the next draw Friday night.

The Mega Millions Award is now the fifth largest in US history.

This is only the second time that both national lottery games have topped $ 500 million.

The prizes have grown so massive because it has been months since anyone has matched all six numbers and won both jackpots. The chances of winning it all are incredibly small, with one out of 292.2 million for Powerball and one out of 302.5 million for Mega Millions.

The jackpots listed by the lotteries are for winners who choose to be paid through an annuity over 30 years. Almost all winners take the cash option, which for Powerball would be estimated at $ 411.4 million and for Mega Millions would be $ 550.6 million.
