Powerball jackpot soars to $300 million

Lottery Games Could Bring Big Christmas Bonuses

The $300 million Powerball jackpot and the more than $250 million Mega Millions jackpot are not the only reasons lottery sales are on the up. No winning tickets were sold for Saturday's Powerball drawing, so that meant the jackpot grew to an estimated $337 million, which amounts to $210 million with the cash option.

The estimated jackpot is $300 million.

The Lucky for Life numbers for Thursday are 14-10-18-15-24 Lucky Ball 16. The $191.1 million jackpot was won by a three member family partnership.

Those drawings will occur less than a day after last night's Mega Millions drawing, which surged to an estimated $253 million and carried a $157.5 million prize.

Drawings are held every Tuesday and Friday at 11 p.m.in Atlanta.

Classic Lotto draws at 7:05 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.

The cash value of the December 23 Powerball drawing will be at least $191.1 million. The new optional $3 wager Just the Jackpot allows players to receive two entries for a chance to win the game's jackpot prize only. The $1 million prize automatically becomes $2 million with Power Play. Tickets cost $2 each. Tickets are on sale until 9:45 p.m. Saturday.
