This might be the best weekend to try your luck.
The jackpots for two multi-state lottery games continued to climb this week. A Mega Millions player now has a chance to win a $345 million jackpot. A Powerball player meanwhile could stand to win a whopping $455 Million, which is the 8th largest jackpot in Powerball game history.
Mega Millions officials say March has been a historically good month for jackpot winners— 17 have been won during the month. Among those March winners, three are among the ten largest ever Mega Millions jackpots. The record Mega Millions prize of $656 million was won in a drawing on March 30, 2012.
The next Mega Millions drawing is tonight and the next Powerball drawing in Saturday night.
