The Mega Millions jackpot didn’t have a winner again last night, January 19th, for its $865 million drawing, and that means the next drawing two days from now on Friday will be near $1 billion, with a projected jackpot of $970 million. That would be the third largest jackpot in U.S. lottery history!
If you don’t want to wait until Friday, tonight’s Powerball jackpot is also a huge one, projected to be $730 million, the sixth largest in U.S. history and fourth largest in Powerball history!!
There hasn’t been a winner of either Mega Millions or Powerball since September. The largest prize in U.S. lottery history was a $1.58 billion Powerball jackpot split by three winners in 2016.
