Good Sunday Afternoon! We’ve been talking about it for the past week or so, but the jackpots of the Mega Millions and Powerball just keep growing! Nobody matched all six numbers of the Powerball Saturday night. With that said, here is where things stand right now:

When combined, we are close to $2,000,000,000 in jackpots! For the Mega Millions, the drawing on Tuesday will be the 3rd-iggest of all time. The largest jackpot on the Mega Millions topped $1 Billion in 2018. For the Powerball, the drawing on Wednesday will be among the top-5 highest in history.

HOW TO WIN: Mega Millions

When you look at how you win on the Mega Millions, you can see that your odds of winning anything above $10,000 are not that great. Also, keep in mind when you play, there is an option for a Megaplier of $1 for play.

HOW TO WIN: Powerball

The Powerball works about the same way in terms of how to win the whole jackpot. You will have to match all six numbers to win the big prize, but you can match several numbers to win other prizes. Like the Mega Millions, you can add on a Powerplay.

As you can see, the Powerplay option for $1 extra per play can really boost your earnings! In terms of the odds of winning the Grand Prize, you don’t have great odds of winning it or the Mega Millions Grand Prize.

We wish you luck if you are playing! We will keep you updated on the jackpots!
