Big Money Awaits Winners in Lottery Jackpots

9th largest Powerball jackpot up for grabs

At the next drawing Tuesday, lottery players will have a shot to snag $361 million. The cash option on the prize is an estimated $225.9 million. It's a huge amount of money, but the eye-popping numbers are more common than they used to be.

"It's something we often see, particularly when there are two big jackpots - people buying both tickets, " said Jeff Lenard, spokesman for the National Association of Convenience Stores, whose members sell about two-thirds of the nation's lottery tickets.

The drawing is at 10 p.m. today. And the Powerball jackpot is now up to a whopping $440 million.

"Some are playing just the Powerball because it has the highest jackpot, but most appear to be getting at least one ticket for both", Maloney added.

The Mega Millions jackpot is no slouch, either. The Powerball jackpot during that run-up in 2017 reached $758.7 million and became the largest lottery jackpot in the world ever won by a single ticket. Most recently, theLotter has helped create lottery millionaires in Canada, El Salvador, Russia, Ukraine & Australia, and a Panamanian pensioner won $30 million in a USA lottery! With slightly better odds than the Powerball game, it's rare that months pass without someone winning a Mega Millions jackpot.

In other lottery news, the Arkansas-only Natural State Jackpot is at $135,000 for Tuesday night. The drawing for Powerball is Wednesday night.
