No Mega Millions victor, jackpot climbs to $1.6 billion

Signs display the jackpots for Mega Millions and Powerball lottery drawings at a newsstands in midtown Manhattan in New York U.S

The Powerball jackpot will top $620 million this week because no one won Saturday's drawing, but that may seem relatively small compared to the $1.6 billion Mega Millions drawing expected on Tuesday.

While the epic prize is up for grabs in the US, Lottoland UK customers can bet on the outcome of the MegaMillions lottery and potentially win a separate jackpot.

That means that Tuesday's Mega Millions and Wednesday's Powerball jackpots combined are roughly $2.22 billion.

The jackpot beats the previous highest, for $1.586 billion Powerball, drawn on January 13, 2016.

Since 2002, Mega Millions jackpots paid millions in prizes around eight times a year, sometimes even more than a dozen times.

Tickets are $2 at any place that sells N.C. lottery tickets.

If someone picks the winning six numbers, they can either claim the jackpot in 30 payments over 30 years - the so-called annuity option - or take a reduced amount in a lump sum. United Kingdom players can win a separate prize by betting on the numbers.

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

The winning numbers for Saturday's drawing were 16, 54, 57, 62, 69 with a Powerball of 23. Again, the computer can do this for you if you don't want to choose your own numbers.

No grand prize victor was drawn Saturday and the jackpot is now $620 million. But because the player added the Power Play for an extra $1, the prize is $2 million.
