Win big with Powerball and Mega Millions jackpot

Lottery players have another chance to win big this week with dueling jackpots adding up to more than $1.5 billion.

The Powerball jackpot has grown to $730 million and the Mega Millions jackpot has soared to an estimated $850 million after there were no winners in the latest drawings for each lottery.

This is the first time both games have simultaneously posted jackpots over $700 million.

As it stands now, the Powerball jackpot prize will be the fifth biggest in the history of the United States. If a winner claims the Mega Millions after the next drawing, it would be the third largest jackpot in the nation’s history.

The next Mega Millions drawing is tonight. The Powerball drawing will be on Wednesday.
