No Powerball jackpot winners; prize jumps to $384 million for Saturday drawing

With a Powerball jackpot estimated at $384 million and Mega Millions at $306 million, US lottery aficionados for just the second time in history have two opportunities to try for jackpots exceeding $300 million. Its next drawing is Friday night.

Both games offering $300 million prizes at the same time has been rare in the past.

But Joshua Haffner of Haffner Law (, who has handled two of the largest lottery fraud cases in United States history, warns super large jackpots can bring unanticipated disputes.

It takes $2 to play Mega Millions for a chance to win big.

The winning numbers were 3, 9, 16, 56 and 60 with a Powerball of 3 and a Power Play of 3.

The idea was to go longer between jackpot winners, and to thus increase the size of the top prize.

$306 million...that's what is up for grabs this Friday, December 29th via Mega Millions.

The odds of winning the Powerball drawing are only 1 in 292.2 million. Pacific time on Tuesdays and Fridays.

Then, pick five lucky numbers from 1 to 69 and one POWERBALL number from 1 to 26.

"It's the second time in history that both jackpots are over $300 million at the same time", he said.

And Americans do love buying lottery tickets.

The record was a $1.58 billion jackpot in January of 2016.

For office pools, if you can't get a "formal agreement in writing", make sure to document who put in money and how much they paid by taking a picture or a video with your phone and having everyone agree "on camera" to share equally the jackpot, if won.
