Meanwhile, the Mega Millions jackpot raised itself to $306 million.

No one hit the Powerball jackpot Wednesday night, causing the Saturday night jackpot to swell to $384 million.

A 1-in-292-million Powerball ticket holder could win a $384 million jackpot this week - but it's not the only lottery to surpass $300 million. Tickets cost $2 each. The change also bumped up the starting "guaranteed" jackpot from $15 million to $40 million.

The chance of winning both games is one in 88 quadrillion.


MA woman claims $758.7 million Powerball ticket. That jackpot was the largest jackpot ever won on a single ticket in US history! The second largest, a $758.7 million Powerball jackpot, was won by a single person in August.

Mega Millions players can pick six numbers from two separate pools of numbers-five distinct numbers from 1 to 70 and one number from 1 to 25-as indicated by the diversion's tenets. Revamps to the country's two big lottery games in recent years decreased the odds of picking all the numbers needed for the top prize, though officials point out it has increased the number of winners who score smaller prizes that range from $1 million to $5 million, depending on the game. No one matched the winning numbers from the Tuesday, Dec. 26, drawing.

The winning numbers for Wednesday's Powerball for the grand prize of $337 million are 3, 9, 16, 56, 60 and the Powerball is 3.

The move was similar to one made by Powerball in October 2015. For an additional $1 per play, players have the opportunity to add a "Megaplier" that can multiply non-jackpot prizes by up to five times. The "Christmas" Powerball jackpot rolled over again - with no winners from Wednesday night, December 27.
