And if that's not enough, there was no victor in Friday night's Mega Millions contest, pushing Tuesday's prize to $343 million. Both lotto games had their most recent jackpot wins in late October.

Powerball, with a Saturday night drawing, says its jackpot has jumped to $384 million while Mega Millions weighs in at around $343 million. If there is no jackpot victor, the amount grows even larger for the next drawing. In August, an IL player won a $393 million jackpot.

Both are played in 44 states, plus Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Powerball is played in all the same places, plus Puerto Rico.
