MegaMillions and Powerball jackpots combined are now almost 1 BILLION dollars

Mega Millions Jackpot Hits $548 Million Here’s How You Can Win BigMore

Meanwhile, an estimated $654 million is up for grabs in the next Mega Millions drawing. That's the fourth largest lottery prize in US history.

The winning numbers were 11, 14, 32, 43, and 65 with a Powerball of 15.

This week's Powerball has an nearly equally impressive top prize, the game's fourth-largest jackpot in history, now at $345 million.

If you want all the Mega Millions money up front, the payout on $654 million is a paltry $372 million.

The cash option, which is favored by almost all winners, is $372 million.

"This increase reflects very strong sales of Mega Millions tickets here in Virginia and across the nation", a spokesperson for the Virginia Lottery said. It's only $2 million less than the March 2012 record of $656 million.

The odds of winning Tuesday's drawing is more than 302 million to one.

And Friday's Mega Millions wasn't a complete bust. One ticket, sold in Arkansas, matched the five white balls Friday night to win the game's second prize that, because of a multiplier, cashed in for $3 million. It was the largest prize distributed for a single ticket.

Wednesday's Powerball jackpot is nothing to sneeze at either.
