Jackpot for the Friday night drawing has grown even bigger since nobody had the winning numbers in its Tuesday drawing. The Powerball jackpot and Mega Millions jackpots are both over $400 million at the same time for the first time.

Somebody in Florida will be waking up a multi-millionaire Saturday morning. Powerball odds are one in 292.2 million. As usual, the victor can choose the annuity or opt for the cash at $281 million, which is still a pretty penny as the sole victor. Tickets in California, Massachusetts, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas also matched five numbers.

The Mega Millions jackpot stood at $450 million, with a $281 million cash option, at mid-day Friday, according to its official website.


In 2013, an 84-year-old Zephyrhills woman was the victor of the largest single jackpot in American lottery history, valued at $590.6 million. The draw is to be made on Saturday night.

A Florida resident is the sole lucky victor of the massive Mega Millions jackpot that was decided on Friday night.
