"Since both these jackpots started rolling at the beginning of December, we've generated more than $26 billion in sales and that has a potential transfer rate of more than $9.5 million back to the state of Arizona", said Chris. Powerball has odds of one in 292.2 million. I would give each of my three children $1 million each and set aside some for my grandchildren's education. What would you do if you won the lottery? Friday, January 5th, there are back to back lottery jackpots that are in the hundreds of millions of dollars - and that fever is burning twice as hot.

The Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots hover around and exceed the $500 million mark.
