Multi-state Jackpots offer $738 Million Combined

Excitement is buzzing among Lottery players across the nation as jackpots for both multi-state games, MEGA MILLIONS® and POWERBALL®, have continued to rise to a combined total of $738 million. The MEGA MILLIONS jackpot rolled to $382 million after Tuesday night’s draw, and the POWERBALL jackpot rolled to $356 million after Wednesday night’s draw.

Even if players don’t win the jackpot, they can still claim cash prizes of up to $5 million with MEGA MILLIONS and $2 million with POWERBALL. The integrity of all games is of utmost importance to the Florida Lottery; and players are reminded to sign the back of their tickets at the time of purchase and keep them in a safe place.

MEGA MILLIONS jackpots start at $15 million and roll until the jackpot is won. Players win by matching the five white ball numbers (1-75) and the golden Mega Ball number (1-15). There are eight other ways to win non-jackpot prizes ranging from $1 to $1 million or up to $5 million if the ticket includes Megaplier. The overall odds of winning a prize in the game are approximately one in 14.71.

POWERBALL jackpots start at $40 million and roll until the jackpot is won. Players win by matching the five white ball numbers (1-69) and the red POWERBALL (1-26). There are eight other ways to win non-jackpot prizes ranging from $4 to $1 million or up to $2 million if the ticket includes Power Play. The overall odds of winning a prize in the game are approximately one in 24.87.

Purchase your tickets at any of the more than 13,000 Lottery retailers for your chance to become Florida’s newest multi-millionaire. The Florida Lottery reminds all players to play responsibly, as it only takes one ticket to win. As with all Florida Lottery products, players must be 18 years or older to play.
