Powerball jackpot grows to $730M; Mega Millions to be $850M
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Lottery players have another chance to win big next week as there were no grand prize winners for the Powerball and Mega Millions jackpots in their recent draws.
The Powerball jackpot rose to an estimated $ 730 million after no one hit all five numbers and the red ball in the draw on Saturday night. If a lottery player makes it big in the next Powerball drawing on Wednesday, it would be the fifth largest jackpot ever in the US.
The winning numbers were 67, 20, 65, 14, 39 and the Powerball was 02.

Nobody beat the odds of winning Friday's Mega Millions drawing, bringing the jackpot to an estimated $ 850 million. That would be the third largest jackpot ever if there was a grand prize winner for the drawing on Tuesday.
It's been almost two years since a lottery jackpot got this big. Nobody has won the top prize in either game for months.
The jackpot amounts listed refer to winners who choose a pension that is paid over 30 years. The winners almost always choose cash prizes, which for Powerball would be $ 546 million. The estimated cash prize for the next Mega Millions jackpot is $ 628.2 million.
Mega Millions and Powerball are both played in 45 states, as well as Washington, DC and the US Virgin Islands. Powerball is also offered in Puerto Rico.
