The two winning Mega Millions tickets were sold in California and Georgia, lottery officials said Wednesday.
Half a billion dollars so far: That's the record-setting jackpot level that Mega Millions is promising for one lucky winner in Tuesday's draw.
Lottery officials on Tuesday raised the Mega Millions jackpot to $636 million — the fourth-largest jackpot of all time — but with a day of sales before the drawing and both lottery veterans and holiday hopefuls flocking to ticket counters, what happens next is anyone's guess.
John Johnson has played the same six lottery numbers in every Mega Millions drawing for the past three years.
A $320 million Powerball jackpot is scheduled for Wednesday night, and officials are hoping the multimillion-dollar mania that seized the area earlier this year could turn the drawing into a record-breaking win.
Their reasoning is that about 66 percent of the potential combinations were played Tuesday, and with more people playing their odds for Friday's drawing, "we'll probably be well into 90 percent of the combinations," Ms. Otto said.
The odds of winning the jackpot prize are 1 in 175 million, and Mr. Roogow and Ms. Otto said they are fairly confident that someone will win the jackpot Friday.
