Powerball and Mega Millions jackpots top $400M

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (ADAMS) – If you’re feeling lucky today, you might want to pick up a Power Ball or Mega Millions ticket.

Last night’s drawing for the Mega Millions jackpot of $361 million prize had no winner, so the pot grows again.
It is now an estimated $418 million dollars. This is fourth largest prize in Mega Millions history.
Last night’s numbers were: 01, 42, 47, 64 and 70; the Mega Ball was 22.

Mega Millions changed its ticket prices in October resulting in double jackpot prizes.

The Powerball jackpot for Wednesday’s drawing is estimated to be $440 million. A winner could choose a a one-time cash payout of $278.3 million.

As always, your chances of winning are rather low. The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are around 1 in 200-million. And the Mega Millions is 1 in about 300-million.

The Powerball numbers will be drawn Wednesday night. The Mega Millions drawing is scheduled for 11 p.m. Friday
