Powerball Jackpot Reaches $345 million

Powerball Jackpot Reaches $345 million

A record-smashing Mega Millions prize could be awaiting a lucky victor when the multi-state lottery and Powerball kick off a two-day, $1 billion jackpot grab Tuesday night. There hasn't been a Mega Millions victor since 11 California co-workers split a $543 million stake in July.

Virginia Lottery reports the jackpots for Mega Millions and Powerball have reached nearly $1 billion combined. "With a little luck, we may still break that record by Tuesday". The two games make the combined possible winnings $999 million dollars.

A couple from Sheridan, Arkansas claimed a $3 million Mega Millions prize Monday (Oct. 15) afternoon.

A nine-member office pool from Aurora won a $1 million prize from Mega Millions after matching five out of six winning numbers last week, according to Colorado Lottery officials. So don't quit your day job just yet. They're stuck at a miserable one in 302.5 million.

That's when the next Powerball drawing is. The big jackpots could mean lines at some ticket locations as the drawings near.
