Next up: $730M Powerball prize after no Mega Millions winner
The Powerball jackpot is the fifth-largest ever, and it will come only a day after nobody won the even-larger Mega Millions prize, which now stands at $970 million. The biggest prize was a $1.58 billion Powerball jackpot won by three people in 2016. Such a long stretch without a winner is rare but also reflects the incredibly small odds of winning — one in 292.2 million for Powerball and one in 302.5 million for Mega Millions. Most winners opt for cash prizes, which for Mega Millions would be $716.3 million and $546 million for Powerball. Mega Millions and Powerball are both played in 45 states as well as Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
