Friday's Mega Millions jackpot is now $393

With no Wednesday winner, Powerball jackpot grows

Million-dollar Powerball ticket sold in the Heights

The victor, who made a decision to remain anonymous, matched the first five numbers but not the Powerball to win $1 million.

So what are the odds of the same person winning the Mega Millions drawing on Friday and the Powerball drawing on Saturday?

For the first time, the Powerball and Mega Millions jackpots are both more than $350-million.

Officials with the Kentucky Lottery officials say a victor in Kentucky could be great for the state economically.

Lottery players have a choice.

Dueling jackpots for Mega Millions and Power Ball have never been this high, motivating people to play both games instead of just one.

If you decide to go for it, Mega Millions tickets will cost you $1 each, plus an extra $1 for the Megaplier.

Having two jackpots standing at $749 million together, is still fun, Gentry said. The odds are not much better at 1 in 292,201,338. Between the two games, there have been 34 straight drawings without a jackpot victor.

That's more than 75 quadrillion for those who don't want to figure that out. The two lump-sum payments are still significant - $246 million for Mega Millions, and $224 million for Powerball, before taxes. If won, that would be the fifth largest jackpot in the 15-year history of the game. The name of the Hannaford victor was never revealed.

St. Amand said she would also like to pay off her home and take a vacation.
