Tonight’s MEGA MILLIONS ® jackpot has an estimated annuity of $290 million. Saturday’s POWERBALL® jackpot has an estimated annuity of $385 million.

(DOVER, Del.) — It will take more than an early March snow storm to stop the jackpots for MEGA MILLIONS® and POWERBALL® from heating up. The two games currently have a combined total jackpot of $675 million.

Tonight’s MEGA MILLIONS® jackpot has an estimated annuity of $290 million while tomorrow night’s POWERBALL® jackpot has an estimated annuity of $385 million – providing players with two opportunities to win big this weekend.

The combined $675 jackpot is the largest combined total since early January when the two games combined for $1.02 billion.

POWERBALL® drawings are held every Wednesday and Saturday at 10:59 PM EST.

MEGA MILLIONS® drawings are held every Tuesday and Friday at 11:00 PM EST with tickets for tonight’s jackpot on sale until 9:45 PM.
