Mega Millions and Powerball prizes both north of $300 million

Aug 7, 2017

After no winners claimed them over the weekend, the Powerball and Mega Millions jackpots are both on the rise.

 

The Powerball jackpot now sits at $307 million and the Mega Millions jackpot is up to $346 million.

Of course, any future winner could opt to take a one-time cash payout of $193 million and $216 million respectively.

 

The Mega Millions prize sits just outside the top 20 all time in the United States.

 

The next Mega Millions drawing is Tuesday night. The next Powerball drawing is Wednesday night.

Delaware has never had a Mega Millions jackpot winner, but last December, a winning Powerball ticket worth nearly $121 million was sold at a Selbyville gas station.

 

The odds of hitting the Powerball are one in 292 million. The odds of winning the Mega Millions jackpot are one in 258 million.
