For the First Time, Mega Millions® and Powerball® Jackpots Have Simultaneously Climbed over $300 Million
The Mega Millions® and Powerball® jackpots are continuing to grow, and are on the cusp of breaking records. This week they're setting a different kind of record. Since Rhode Island began selling Mega Millions® seven years ago, the games have never had advertised jackpots above $300 million at the same time. Tuesday's Mega Millions® jackpot is an estimated $346 million and Wednesday's Powerball® jackpot is an estimated $307 million.
