But before then, players can try for an even bigger reward with the Mega Millions on Tuesday, now boasting a tally of $1.6 billion, bringing both lotteries to the aforementioned combined total of $2.22 billion.

Arizona lottery officials say a $1 million winning Powerball ticket was sold at the Superpumper gas station near State Route 89 and State Route 71 in Congress.

After he bought his Mega Millions tickets inside, he said he gave the lotto employees a head's up about what to expect when he returns after his numbers are picked Tuesday night. It was the 25th drawing in a row that did not result in a victor.

Powerball also has a major jackpot, as it is estimated at $620 million ahead of a Wednesday drawing. The Maryland Lottery and Gaming estimates that 75% of the 302m possible number combinations will be chosen by the time of the draw on Tuesday night, up from 59.1% on Friday.

The record-breaking jackpot expected for the next Mega Millions drawing was at $1.6 billion by Monday afternoon. And let's hear it for Rhode Island, the smallest population state to have won a Mega Millions jackpot in the past five years.

That's the value if the victor or winners select annuity payments. The National Weather Service says a person has about a 1 in a million chance of getting hit.




The Mega Millions tax bite, though, is pretty solid. "If you can't win with one you can't win, right?"

As a regular lottery player, he said he buys more tickets when the jackpot is higher. It is 1 in 292,201,338.

People have come up with "strategies" to win, which including driving a distance to play at a lucky location, but the most common strategy is number picking. Of the five largest jackpots awarded in the US, three went to multiple winners.

The base prize for matching the five white numbers drawn is $1 million.

The winning numbers were 5, 28, 62, 65, 70 and Mega Ball 5. Of the five largest jackpots awarded in the USA, three went to multiple winners. The No. 1 population state of California is second in Mega Millions winners with six, while IL is third with four winners.
