Just Imagine…

For the first time since October of 2018 the Mega Millions jackpot has once again surpassed $600 million dollars.  Strong sales have pushed tonight's drawing to over $616 million. The cash payout is 451.8 million according to the Mega Millions website.

The jackpot has not been hit since someone in Wisconsin had all the ping pong balls bounce their way in September.  The new jackpot has been rolling over ever since.  If hit, tonight’s jackpot would be the fourth largest.  The top three jackpots to date were $1,537 billion won in South Carolina in 2018…$656 Million in 2012 and in third place $648 million won in 2013.

On the heels of tonight’s massive jackpot for Mega Millions, tomorrow night’s Powerball drawing is worth a massive $550 million dollars.  To give you an idea of how much cash that is, if you were to stack $100 bills on top of each other you would reach the top of One Trade Center in NYC and be able to stack another wad of cash as high as the Smithsonian in Washington.  The Powerball drawing tomorrow night is at 10.00.

For only the second time in the history of these two jackpots have both combined for a sum of over 1 billion dollars.  Both Powerball and Mega Millions costs $2 per play.  Powerball you choose 5 numbers between 1 and 69 and then choose 1 number as your Powerball with a number range between 1 and 26.  Mega Millions you choose 5 numbers between 1 and 70 and 1 number between 1 and 25 known as the gold Mega Ball.

Best of luck if you’re going to lay down some of you hard earned cash!
