The Florida Lottery says the winning ticket was bought at a 7-Eleven convenience store in Port Richey. The Powerball jackpot also surged, sitting at $550 million, with a $348 million cash option, after no victor Wednesday.

Mega Millions would be the fourth largest jackpot in that game's history at $450 million if someone matches all six numbers on Friday night. The Powerball jackpot and Mega Millions jackpots are both over $400 million at the same time for the first time. The $450 million dollar prize is the fourth-largest in Mega Millions history according to CBS News and stands as the tenth largest across the entire USA lottery.

The Florida Power Ball, which is up to $570 million, will be drawn on Saturday evening.




Powerball odds are one in 292.2 million.

It is rare for both of the U.S.' largest jackpots to grow to such large amounts at the same time-but in the last three years the rules for both games have been tweaked to give them longer odds and larger, more eye-catching jackpots. On Aug. 15, 2012, Donald Lawson, of Lapeer, won a $337 million Powerball jackpot. Lottery retailers throughout the state are selling Mega Millions tickets until 10:45 p.m. Friday. Each Mega Millions play is only $2.

Powerball drawings take place at 10:59 p.m. on Wednesday and Saturday and may be watched live online at: http://www.powerball.com. Since it began in 1972, the Lottery has contributed more than $20.5 billion to support public education.
