TYLER, Texas (KETK) – Despite nationwide interest in both the Mega Millions and Powerball lotteries, neither was able to produce a jackpot winner early this week.
The Powerball drawing on Wednesday was valued at more than half a billion dollars. It has now climbed to $640 million. The next drawing is set for Saturday.
The Mega Millions lottery has reached $750 million and will draw next on Friday. The combined lottery jackpots have reach $1.39 billion.
The largest ever jackpot was won back in January 2016 when the Powerball reached $1.58 billion. It was split between three winners in California, Florida, and Tennessee.
The biggest single ticket winner was back in October 2018 when a South Carolina resident won a Mega Millions jackpot at $1.53 billion.
