Powerball, Mega Millions jackpots of $690 million up for grabs

The next Mega Millions drawing is Friday Dec. 29 with an estimated jackpot of $306 million and cash option of $191 million. Earlier this year, Mega Millions changed the range of numbers players can chose from, lowering the odds of winning the jackpot to 1 in 302.6 million.

If a MI player win's Friday's $306 million jackpot, it would be the largest Mega Millions prize won in the state. If no one wins this Friday, Tuesday's jackpot will be in the top 10. The odds of winning the grand prize for Powerball are 1 in 292.2 million. The Stebbins's jackpot holds the record for the largest Mega Millions prize ever won in MI.

The Powerball game has a comparative arrangement. To win the jackpot, a player must match every number-including the Powerball. The winning Powerball numbers from Wednesday were 3, 9, 16, 56, 60 and Powerball 3. Players pick five numbers from 1 to 69 and one Powerball number from 1 to 26.

Saturday's $384 million jackpot is the fourth-largest Powerball jackpot in 2017.

Players also have another chance to be a millionaire: the in-state Megabucks Doubler game, which will be drawn at 11:20 p.m. on Saturday, sits at an estimated $7.9 million.
