The two jackpots now have a combined value of over $2.2 billion.

There was no victor in Saturday night's Powerball $430 million drawing, just as there was no victor in Friday night's Mega Millions drawing. The next Mega Millions drawing is Tuesday with the jackpot expected to exceed the USA record of $1.6 billion.

One lucky Bronx resident is all smiles today because they are one of the lucky winners of the Mega Million lottery jackpot. The victor can also opt for a cash prize of more than $354 million, from which the federal government will take 25% right away, and more later.

The Mega Millions jackpot will likely set a new record, and the Powerball jackpot will be the third largest ever for that game on Wednesday.

The numbers drawn Saturday were 62-16-54-57-69 and the Powerball was 23. Many hopefuls haven't played before.

The odds of winning the jackpot are about one in 302 million but, with so many tickets being purchased, the likelihood of rollover becomes increasingly slim.

Lottery officials said the move was a pure answer to its players' calls. There were $2 million winners in Florida and Tennessee, and $1 million winners in Arizona, Connecticut, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey and Washington.

Mega Millions tickets are sold in 44 US states, the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands.

The odds of winning the Mega Millions jackpot are one in 302,575,350, but the odds of winning any of the lesser prizes are one in 24.
