Seven-time lottery game grand prize victor Richard Lustig tips on his advice to win the Mega Million and Powerball jackpots. The numbers were 3, 45, 49, 61, 69 and Mega Ball 9.

Ascienzo also says while lottery jackpots are overwhelming played by low-income Americans, ticket sales tend to hit a tipping point because higher-income Americans are drawn to the higher jackpots as well.

A $150,000 winning ticket from Wednesday night's Powerball drawing was sold in Owensboro. "If you have not purchased a Mega Millions ticket, you can not win a prize", they say.

The current jackpot is the largest Mega Millions jackpot in the lottery's history at $970 million.

The Mega Millions jackpot is now up to $900 million.

Mega Millions is offered in 44 states, the District of Columbia and the US Virgin Islands.




The Mega Millions jackpot just hit a record $US970 million ($1.4 billion), the second-largest U.S. lottery pool ever, trailing only the $US1.59 billion Powerball prize in 2016.

This is the third millionaire created in Kentucky in the past 10 days. A California resident would do even worse, bringing home $272 million after taxes, H&R Block said.

"Ultimately, these games, they're all about the jackpots", Gordon Medenica, Maryland's lottery and gaming director, said Wednesday. "So, if you're talking about small number three, and five and seven are typically liked, and six and eight are typically disliked", he said. Most winners take the cash option, which would pay more than half a billion dollars after taxes, or an annuity, with one initial payment and annual installments over 29 years.

No one has matched all six numbers and won the Mega Millions grand prize since July 24.

More than $1 billion is up for grabs in this weekend's drawings for the nation's two giant multi-state lottery games, and North Carolina players have as good a chance as anyone at winning.
