If you we're looking for a sign to buy a lottery ticket... this might just be it!
As of today, there is $1 billion up for grabs between the Powerball and Mega Millions lotteries! After no winning ticket was claimed on Tuesday, the Mega Millions jackpot went up to $667 million. (That's a cash value of about $380 million, but who's complaining?!).
"The estimated annuity value of the jackpot in tonight’s Mega Millions drawing was raised today to $667 million, making it the largest in the game’s history and third-largest in U.S. lottery jackpot history," the lottery statement said.
The Mega Millions jackpot has been increasing ever since July, when a group of 11 coworkers in Santa Clara County won $543 million. That win was the fourth-largest jackpot in the game's history.
Wednesday's drawing for the Powerball jackpot is $345 million.
