Mega Millions and Powerball lotteries now have $1 billion combined jackpot

Powerball jackpot grows to $345M after no one wins Saturday prize

Wednesday's Powerball jackpot stands at $345 million.

One "Match 5" victor was reported in Arkansas, according to the site.

The $654 million would be the payout if a victor selects for the annuity option, paid out over 29 years.

Did someone say $1 billion in jackpots? The cash option, which is favored by almost all winners, is $380 million.

Players have a chance to win about $667 million with the Mega Millions jackpot on Tuesday night.

That in itself is likely to bring disruption to roads and there is likely to be some bridge closures and power outages. The south-east is expected to be blustery but stay "quite dry", with temperatures possibly reaching up to 24C (75F).

The largest jackpot in Mega Millions history was a $656 million prize that was shared by winners from Kansas, Illinois and Maryland in March 2012.

It's the second-largest jackpot in the game's history and fourth-biggest lottery jackpot ever in the United States.

And Friday's Mega Millions wasn't a complete bust.

No ticket matched the six winning numbers in Friday's Mega Millions drawing, pushing the jackpot up from $548 million to a whopping $654 million. If those tickets were purchased with the Megaplier option, the prizes would be multiplied to $30,000.

The next Powerball drawing will be held on Wednesday. The big jackpots could mean lines at some ticket locations as the drawings near.
