Winners are offered two options: Take the US$970m in payments spread over 30 years, or they can have a lump-sum of US$548m. The next drawing is Friday, where the estimated jackpot could top $1 billion.

A ticket in Lexington for last night's Powerball won the game's second prize of $1 million.

The odds of winning the Mega Millions jackpot are one in 302,575,350, but Young said she already had plans for some things she would do if she struck gold.

Tickets that won $50,000 were sold at Bob's Beer & Wine in Bellingham; Convenience Plus in Lee; and Market Basket in Tewksbury. Michigan Lottery said the majority of tickets for a jackpot are purchased on the day of the drawing. The immediate cash value of the Mega Millions prize is $548 million.

Each of the 24 semi-weekly drawings have failed to produce a top victor since July 24, when an 11-member office pool in Santa Clara County, California, hit a $543 million jackpot.

The next Powerball drawing will be on Saturday, October 20th, 2018 with an estimated Grand Prize of $430,000,000, or $248,000,000 cash.

Pick the less liked numbers, he suggests, that way you're more likely take home a bigger chunk of the pot. Add that up, and you get $1.33 billion. Again, the computer can do this for you if you don't want to choose your own numbers.

For an extra $1 you can get a "Power Play" ticket in which you can increase the amount of the smaller prizes, but not the grand prize.

Believe it or not, this week's combined billion-dollar haul is not the biggest prize in the lottery's history.
