  • 9th largest Powerball jackpot up for grabs

At the next drawing Tuesday, lottery players will have a shot to snag $361 million. Furthermore, since theLotter stores clients' tickets in OR, it abides by the US Immoral Acts Law, which stipulates that one is "prohibited from importing into the United States from any foreign country any lottery ticket".

This week they'll also be putting cash down on the Mega Millions for a jackpot that has soared to $343 million, the eight largest in Mega Millions history. The cash option is about $225 million.

Classic Lotto's jackpot has increased to a relatively modest $26.3 million after no tickets matched Monday's winning numbers of 13-16-22-28-39-45 Kicker 118639.

Lottery officials said six Mega Million jackpots were won in 2017.

Powerball and Mega Millions have been rising steadily for the past few weeks, with both games' jackpots now at the point where even casual lottery players start to put ticket-buying on their list of things to do in the next few days.

Tickets for both games sell for $2.

The Mega Millions drawing is televised every Tuesday and Friday at 11 p.m. on selected television stations. That's more than they spent on movies, video games, music, sports tickets and books - combined.
