Dreaming of being a billionaire? Win both the Powerball and Mega Millions jackpots this week, and you’ll be quite a bit closer.
The rising multistate lotteries have combined jackpots of just under $1 billion.
The Powerball jackpot has risen to an estimated $550 million after no one won the top prize in the Wednesday night drawing.
The winning numbers for Wednesday’s $460 million Powerball jackpot were 2, 18, 37, 39 and 42. The Powerball was 12.
The odds of winning the Powerball grand prize are 1 in 292,201,338. The next drawing is Saturday night.
Powerball isn’t the only jackpot over $400 million.
There was no jackpot winner in Tuesday night’s Mega Millions drawing, so the top prize for its Friday night drawing is estimated to be $445 million, the fourth-largest amount in the game’s history.
