The combined jackpots of Mega Millions and Powerball are sitting at $1B! Isn’t that nuts!?
ABC10.com reports, “The Mega Millions jackpot for Tuesday’s drawing is nearly the largest ever in the game: $654 million (cash option of $372 million). The Mega Millions record — $656 million — could be broken Tuesday, according to Gordon Medenica, lead director of the Mega Millions Consortium and director of Maryland Lottery and Gaming. Three winning tickets split the record amount in 2012.
The jackpot for the next Powerball drawing on Wednesday will be $345 million (cash option of $199 million), which makes it the 17th largest in the game’s history.
The Powerball numbers drawn Saturday were 11-14-32-43-65 and Powerball 15. The Power Play was 3.”
Can you imagine $1B? I can’t.
