$530M up for grabs in Powerball, Mega Millions drawings


Current jackpots for Mega Millions and Powerball combine for more than $500 million.

Tonight’s Mega Millions jackpot is at $170 million, but the big prize is Wednesday night’s $360 million Powerball jackpot, which increased by $10 million Tuesday afternoon.

The Powerball jackpot has rolled over 12 times since someone in Illinois won $50 million on March 30. On March 23, a New Jersey man won a $338 million jackpot.

The last winning Mega Millions ticket was sold in Ohio on March 12, with a $41 million prize.

The current Powerball jackpot has a cash value of nearly $223 million.

The $520 million up for grabs from the Powerball and Mega Millions drawings is the highest combined jackpot total in Georgia since the multi-state draw games began cross-selling in 2010, the Georgia Lottery said.

Both drawings will air live on WSBTV at 11 p.m., just before Channel 2 Action News Nightbeat.
