The odds of winning the current Mega Millions jackpot are 1 in 302,575,350 and is not dependent on the number of players in the pot.

Two national lottery games - Mega Millions and Powerball - are sporting huge jackpots, topping a billion in total combined winnings. The jackpot will grow to an estimated $430 million for Saturday's drawing.

One Mega Millions ticket holder in the Bay Area came close to clinching the jackpot, having matched five of the six numbers for a $1.9 million win, the California Lottery tweeted. It now stands at $900 million and is the second-largest jackpot in USA history.

The Kentucky Lottery says someone in Lexington matched all five white balls, but not the Powerball, to win the game's second prize of $1 million.

"Since these changes, three of the six largest Mega Millions jackpots have been paid out", he says.

The all-time largest lottery win was on January 13, 2016, when three tickets shared $1.586 billion in a Powerball drawing, CNBC reported. Winners include Ashley Eggen of Elizabethtown, who won a $1 million prize in the Mega Millions drawing on October 8.

Their first decision is whether to take the cash option or an annuity, with one initial payment and annual installments over 29 years.
