  • 343M and $440M jackpots tempt lottery players

The Mega Millions jackpot has grown since October 17 and has rolled 22 times.

Lottery players have a chance at winning two giant jackpots that together amount to almost $800 million. "But with the $553 million Cdn. jackpot right at the start of 2018, we are certain the new year will be even more successful for us in terms of online Powerball ticket sales".

The Mega Millions jackpot for Tuesday's drawing is now up to $363 million.

And Americans do love buying lottery tickets.

2017 at the Box Office
Taking the No. 1 spot for the third week in a row is " Star Wars: The Last Jedi ", bringing in an estimated $52 million . Walt Disney Studios has earned back the $4.06 billion cost to purchase Lucasfilm thanks to the new " Star Wars " films.

The lump-sum cash options are now $278.3 million for Powerball and $215 for Mega Millions. It's a huge amount of money, but the eye-popping numbers are more common than they used to be.

"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 largest Powerball jackpot on record was $1.586 billion, which was won last January.

$343 million...that's what's up for grabs this Tuesday, January 2nd via Mega Millions.

But that didn't stop people from buying tickets to both games in recent days. Eastern Time and Powerball drawings are held Wednesday and Saturday evenings at 10:59 p.m.
