TeeRoy's 2 Cents:
- Sorry to tell you, but your odds of winning the Mega Millions is 1-in-302.5 million. It's a little better for Powerball at 1-in-292 million. Good luck.
- The largest lottery jackpot ever was a $1.58 billion Powerball jackpot in 2016 that was shared by three people.
- The largest jackpot won by a single person was $1.56 billion in 2018 by someone in South Carolina.
There were no winners of Tuesday night's Mega Millions jackpot, which now sets up a grand prize worth at least $750 million in Friday night's drawing.
Last night's drawing, worth $625 million, had a few million dollar winners, but no one matched all the numbers and the Mega ball. The winning numbers were: 12, 14, 26, 28, and 33. The Mega Ball was 9.
Lottery players and dreamers also have a shot at $550 million in tonight's Powerball drawing.
