Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots combined are worth $1.3 billion

Florida ticket wins $2 million as Powerball jackpot swells to $430 million

A ticket sold in Lexington for Wednesday night's Powerball drawing matched the five white ball winning numbers but not the Powerball, winning the game's second prize of $1 million.

The numbers are 3, 57, 64, 68, 69 and the Powerball is 15. It had increased early Wednesday to $868 million and officials raised the jackpot to $900 million later in the day.

Details of where the winning Florida ticket was sold were not immediately available.

The largest lottery jackpot was a $1.6 billion Powerball prize won in January 2016.

Despite insanely long odds - one in 302.5 million - someone with an unparalleled gift for picking numbers - or an astonishing amount of good luck- very well could match all six Mega Millions numbers on Friday, and win a jackpot that now stands at a mind-blowing $970 million.

Dreams of being a billionaire are now in reach, thanks to the Mega Millions. Now, the Mega Millions jackpots grow and grow, creating huge prizes with infrequent payouts.

Manchester United looking to sign Sergej Milinkovic-Savic in January
United have struggled to get the right results this season with three defeats from their first eight Premier League games. The former Everton man was asked a loaded question in the form of whether he would wish to play with his brother or not.

The all-time highest Mega Millions jackpot is now even bigger.

The average American spends about $223 per year on lottery tickets, according to a survey from LENDedu. You can play Mega Millions in 46 localities: 44 states plus Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

"The odds are just about one in 302 million of winning the jackpot", said Odlyzko.

If you want to find out if you picked some or all of the Mega Millions winning numbers this week, go to megamillions.com or lottery.net after the drawing.

It's going to big couple of days for avid lottery players.
