Lottery Jackpots Top $1.5 Billion

There is no winner in Saturday night’s Powerball drawing. The jackpot now moves up to an estimated $730 million dollars. Next drawing is the upcoming night of Inauguration Day. The after tax take home lump sum cash value will be around $546 million. The next Mega-Millions draw is Tuesday night with an estimated before tax jackpot of $850 million.

At a combined $1.5 billion, these jackpot runs have produced the highest combined Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots since October 2018. Both jackpots have been on a roll since they were hit the same week in September. The Mega Millions jackpot was last hit on September 15, 2020, in Wisconsin and the Powerball jackpot was hit a day later in New York.

The Kansas Lottery urges players to play responsibly and safely by maintaining social distancing and wearing a mask when purchasing tickets.
