Big lottery jackpots up for grabs this weekend

DE has never had a Mega Millions jackpot victor, but last December, a winning Powerball ticket worth almost $121 million was sold at a Selbyville gas station. Those tickets were sold in Illinois, Kansas, New York, Pennsylvania and Texas.

The Mega Millions drawing Friday night is worth an estimated $323 million. Saturday night's Powerball drawing is creating its own buzz among players, with an estimated jackpot of $286 million - building since June 14.

"If nobody wins tonight, it will roll up to $346 million", Nesbitt said.

But Powerball wasn't the only game to have a jackpot roll. They also have the Power Play option, which lifted their winnings to $2 million.

Mega Millions tickets cost $1 each.

Drawings take place every Wednesday and Saturday at 10:59 p.m. Deadline to purchase tickets is 9:45 p.m.

The July 22 Powerball drawing produced one second-prize winning ticket that matched the first five numbers drawn. Michigan Lottery Commissioner Aric Nesbitt tells WSJM News 1.2 million tickets were sold as of Friday afternoon in the state.

The most recent big Mega Millions win - $536 million in July 2016 - was the third-largest in the game's history, and the seventh-largest in US history. The last one was for $61 million on April 28.
