No one had the winning numbers Tuesday for the Mega Millions jackpot, which is now estimated at $418 million for Friday’s drawing.
The Powerball tops that with a $440 million prize up for grabs Wednesday, the ninth largest jackpot in Powerball history.
Last time someone won the Mega Millions jackpot was Oct. 13 and the Powerball last saw a winner Oct. 25.
According to lottery officials, jackpot odds for the Powerball are 1 in 292,201,338 and a shot at the Mega Millions jackpot is 1 in 302,575,350.
Records for each jackpot still soar past this week’s totals.
The largest Powerball jackpot ever recorded was $1.586 billion in a win last January. The biggest Mega Millions jackpot was in 2012, when three winners split $656 million.
