Massive Mega Millions and Powerball lottery jackpots

There’s still some time to get your Mega Millions lottery ticket for a drawing featuring an all-time jackpot.

The next drawing is tonight on WXXV! The jackpot soared to $750 million after no one won on Tuesday. This is the second largest Mega Millions jackpot in history.

Also, after no one won the Powerball jackpot in Wednesday’s drawing, the top prize for that is now about $640 million.

Mississippi Lottery Corporation’s director of communications Meg Annison says the high number of tickets sales shows how huge this is for Mississippi. “The jackpots for Mega Million and Powerball both continue their roll. They’ve drummed up so much excitement because our lottery is so new here. This is really the first time we’ve been able to witness our players this excited over a big jackpot.”

So, between both the Powerball and Mega Millions, nearly $1.4 billion are up for grabs.
