Sales are brisk as Mega Millions jackpot hits $1.6 billion

Friday's Mega Millions jackpot soars to $1 billion

On Saturday a ticket purchased in Knoxville won $2 million dollars by matching all five white numbers drawn just one number shy of the jackpot.

The potential Powerball jackpot has now climbed to $620 million for Wednesday's drawing. The winning numbers were: 16, 54, 57, 62, 69, and Powerball 23.

The Mega Millions jackpot is now tied with the record-setting lottery jackpot and bound to grow before the drawing Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Google has also begun to market its wireless charging module, the Pixel Stand, in the local market. The larger Pixel 3 XL will cost $899 for the 64GB variant or $999 for the 128GB model.

The Mega Millions top prize of $1.6 billion has a cash payout option of $904 million, but both can grow depending on the volume of ticket sales.

One Powerball ticket sold in CT is now worth $1 million after Saturday's drawing. But when they do, the amount is mind-blowing - as we can see in recent Mega Millions jackpots. That jackpot was won in January 2016. The victor can also opt for a cash prize of more than $354 million, from which the federal government will take 25% right away, and more later.

Lottery officials say there were no jackpot winners in Saturday's drawing.

Red Sox vs. Astros score
In Thursday night's Game 5, he used it for 39 of his 93 pitches - 41.9% - and got 12 whiffs on changeups, a season high. And which teams are a must-back? Price's Thursday effort didn't just carry the Red Sox to a World Series berth.

The odds of winning the Mega Millions jackpot are one in 302,575,350, but the odds of winning any of the lesser prizes are one in 24.

"We have a demand for innovation to keep fresh, entertaining lottery games and to deliver the attention-grabbing jackpots", said former Mega Millions President Debbie D. Alford at the time.

There were a number of runner-up prizes.

It costs $2 to play the game, but the odds of winning the grand prize is one in 302.5 million.
