Powerball, Mega Millions Jackpots Combine To An Estimated $2.22 Billion

Clarksville Now

The base prize for matching the five white numbers drawn is $1 million.

The U.S. Mega Millions jackpot grew to $1.6 billion, a world record for a lottery, after Friday's drawing produced no victor of the grand prize, officials said. According to the N.C. Education Lottery, which offers Mega Millions tickets, a single victor in Friday's drawing would have received $565.6 million if they took the cash option.

The next Mega Millions drawing will be on Tuesday.

Lottery fever is running rampant, and North Carolina players have as good a chance as anyone at winning the games.

The numbers drawn Saturday were 62-16-54-57-69 while the Powerball was 23.

Under the deal, Manafort pleaded guilty to a series of other financial charges he had set to stand trial on. Prosecutors declined to offer an estimate of when Manafort's cooperation would end.

A drawing was held on Saturday for a Powerball jackpot worth an estimated $470 million.

The lump sum cash payout is estimated at $354.3 million and the next drawing for the Powerball is set for Wednesday.

The Mega Millions jackpot has been growing since July, when a group of 11 California office workers won $543 million. Players get five numbers from 1 to 70 and one Mega number between 1 and 25.

But, although there were 15 second-tier winning tickets of at least $1 million across nine states, nobody won the jackpot - putting the prize for Tuesday's draw at a record $1.6 billion.

Tickets for Mega Millions are $2, and the deadline is 10:50 p.m. ET in most states. The odds of winning the jackpot are about one in 302 million but, with so many tickets being purchased, the likelihood of rollover becomes increasingly slim. The games are played in 44 states, Washington D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
