Powerball, Mega Millions jackpots surpass $300 million

Lottery players in MA have their chance at winning almost $700 million in lottery jackpots this weekend! Its next drawing is Friday night.

Wednesday's winning numbers are: 3 - 9 - 16 - 56 - 60 Powerball: 3 Powerplay: 3xNo winning tickets were sold for Wednesday's Powerball drawing, which means the jackpot rolled to an estimated $384 million, which amounts to almost $240 million with the cash option.

The longer odds actually end up attracting more players because the format leads to more frequent "big" jackpots.

That officer was injured "either by direct or indirect gunfire" and was taken to a hospital in stable condition, authorities said. Police searched the property and eventually found an 11-year-old boy and a 10-month-old girl dead, according to AZFamily.com .

Mega Millions players can pick six numbers from two separate pools of numbers-five distinct numbers from 1 to 70 and one number from 1 to 25-as indicated by the diversion's tenets.

Tickets are $2, and sales time cut-offs vary by state but are usually one to two hours before the drawing.

The idea was to go longer between jackpot winners, and to thus increase the size of the top prize. The change also bumped up the starting "guaranteed" jackpot from $15 million to $40 million. To win the jackpot, a player must match all six winning numbers in a drawing.
