The excitement that a big jackpot can generate is so much fun, and we’ve been watching as the Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots keep climbing! This is the third time both jackpots have simultaneously soared over $300 million.
Tonight’s Powerball drawing has a jackpot of $420 million and Friday’s Mega Millions drawing has a jackpot of $345 million!
