Lottery Fever Hits as Two Jackpots Worth $749 Million Are Up for Grabs
Talk about lottery fever! Two jackpots, with estimated jackpots of $749 million dollars, will be up for grabs. The jackpots could even surge and be worth even more!
First, let's start with Friday's Mega Millions jackpot which is worth $393 million. The cash option is $246 million, according to NJ.com. The Powerball jackpot now stands at $356 million and the cash option is $224 million.
Wondering about your odds? According to CNBC, the odds of winning one jackpot stands at 1 in 300 million, and the staggering odds of winning both are 1 in 75 quadrillion. Sorry to burst your lottery bubble, folks.
I still plan on buying a few tickets for both even though the odds are astronomical and against me winning any portion of either jackpot. You have to be in it to win it!
