Mega Millions, Powerball Start New Year With Big Jackpots

If you're a lottery player- make sure you buy your tickets today.

And Americans do love buying lottery tickets.

Mega Millions draws on Tuesdays and Fridays at 11 p.m. The jackpot is about $343 million, with an estimated $215.3 million cash payout. This is remarkable because it was a year when USA jackpots were much lower - remember that in 2016 Powerball set a $2 billion Cdn. jackpot record!

The jackpot has been rolling since it was last won at $42 million on October 13; that prize was shared by winners in MI and Rhode Island. The odds of winning the jackpot with a $2 ticket are 1 in 30,821,472. That's more than they spent on movies, video games, music, sports tickets and books - combined.
