Powerball winning numbers drawn. Did you win?

Mega Millions

This Friday's jackpot stands at an estimated $60 million with 53 Maxmillion prizes available to be won.

The current jackpot beats the previous record, a US$1.586 billion jackpot for a Powerball drawing in 2016, said Seth Elkin, a spokesman for Mega Millions.

Another massive jackpot will be on the line Saturday when Powerball, which stands at $470 million, is drawn.

'It's hard to overstate how exciting this is - but now it's really getting fun.' Mega Millions tickets are sold in 44 states, Washington DC and the US Virgin Islands.

Lottery officials increased the grand prize just hours ahead of the Friday night drawing.

The odds of winning Mega Millions are 1 in 302.6 million, which are actually less than the odds of winning the Powerball, which is 1 in 292.2 million.

From July 27 through October 16, Mega Millions sales in North Carolina raised an estimated $10.6 million for education, the lottery site said.

"There's still Mega Millions", Lucas told lottery officials. The jackpot has been growing since then. This made a Mega Millions ticket a one in 24 chance of being a victor of some amount when it used to be one in 14.7 odds.

The prize was shared by winners in Kansas, Illinois and Maryland. In that time 26 people have won $1 million for matching every number but the Powerball. After state and federal tax withholdings, he took home $423,012 and plans to put it into savings, according to the lottery news release.

The next Mega Millions draw will be held on Tuesday.

Tickets cost $2 each, and players choose five numbers between one and 70 and an extra number between one and 25.
