$2 Million Powerball Winner in Knoxville

A sign advertising tickets for the $1-billion Mega Millions lottery drawing is seen in Brooklyn New York U.S

Since nobody won Friday's Mega Millions drawing for a $1 billion jackpot, the estimated prize Tuesday night will be a record $1.6 billion.

The jackpot beats the previous highest, for $1.586 billion Powerball, drawn on January 13, 2016.

The next Powerball drawing is at 11 p.m. EST Wednesday.

It costs $US2 to play the game.

Estaban ended up plunking down $10 apiece on Mega Millions and Powerball tickets at Carlton Cards in Penn Station, which sells an average of $246,000 in tickets a week, the most in NY state, according to data obtained by USA Today.

Each Powerball ticket is $2.

And the number of balls and Mega Balls in the game changed significantly, increasing the player's chances of winning secondary prizes even while it decreased those of hitting the jackpot. You can pick your own numbers or the computer will do it for you. United Kingdom players can win a separate prize by betting on the numbers.

For an additional $1 you can get a "Megaplier" ticket that will increase the amount of the smaller prizes, but not the grand prize.

The numbers drawn Saturday were 62-16-54-57-69 and the Powerball was 23.

The Powerball jackpot now stands at $620 million after no one matched all six numbers in Saturday night's $470 million drawing. There are smaller prizes, from $4 up to $1 million, for matching some, but not all, numbers. There were $2 million winners in Florida and Tennessee, and $1 million winners in Arizona, Connecticut, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey and Washington.
