Two Of The Largest Lottery Jackpots Ever Are Up For Grabs This Week
We've all day dreamed of what we would do if those ping pong balls fell in our favor. Most of the time those day dreams take place while working our jobs that will never pay us as much as we can win.
Well this week, you have two shots at winning some of the biggest lottery jackpots in the history of Mega Millions and Powerball. The fun starts Tuesday night (1/12) when Mega Millions will give you the shot at an estimated $615 million dollars. Didn't win that one? Or maybe you did and now you think you can get even more lucky? The next Powerball drawing is Wednesday (1/13) and currently sits at an estimated $550 million dollars. I'm not picky. I'll take either.
So where do these hauls come in for the history of lottery jackpots? Currently, Mega Millions would give you the 7th largest ever win, with Powerball coming in at 12th largest. Again, I'm not picky. I'll take either. Here are the largest jackpots ever.
Oh, and just a reminder, the odds of winning the Mega Millions jackpot are 1 in 302,575,350. And Powerball odds, 1 in 292,201,338.00. So you're saying there's a chance. But, I'm also saying quit day dreaming and get back to work.
