Powerball, Mega Millions Jackpots Total More Than $500M

While some have their sights on a White Christmas, some lottery players are more concerned with dreams of a Green Christmas.

Powerball and Mega Millions lotteries may help make those dreams come true, even if their individual jackpots aren’t record-breakers.

As of Wednesday morning, Mega Millions had a jackpot of at least $247 million. Powerball is at least $269 million. If you add up the amounts, that’s $516 million and the total could still grow.

Those totals are if the winners take it in a prize paid out over 30 payments. If winners take the cash option, the amount is slashed to $155 million for Mega Millions or $171.3 million for Powerball, all before taxes.

The next Powerball drawing is set for Wednesday night.

Mega Millions will be drawn on Friday.
