Powerball and Mega Millions now total $783 million
Between the Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots, almost $800 million is up for grabs. That is, if you hit the jackpot.
Both are played in 44 states, plus Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Wednesday's Powerball jackpot is also huge - $440 million.
Lottery players have a chance at winning two giant jackpots that together amount to almost $800 million.
The Mega Millions drawing is set for Tuesday evening, while Powerball follows on Wednesday if there is no victor Saturday night.
The biggest Powerball jackpot ever was a whopping $1.6 billion that was split three ways in 2016.
And Americans do love buying lottery tickets.
In the 15-year history of Mega Million, four jackpots were won in the first week of the year. It has a $215 million cash option and the drawing is Tuesday evening. Powerball hasn't had such a big prize since August, when a MA player won a $758.7 million jackpot. It was sold in MA.
The winning numbers for the Mega Millions game are drawn from a field of 1 to 75. You can watch the drawing live at 10:59 p.m. Wednesday, right before News 6 at 11 p.m.
