Lottery jackpots increase following midweek rollovers
A huge pair of lottery jackpots are on offer this weekend after both the Mega Millions and Powerball draws rolled over.
The jackpot for the Saturday 27 April Powerball draw has hit $140m after no players matched all six numbers in the previous draw on Wednesday.
Meanwhile the top prize for the Friday 26 April Mega Millions draw now stands at $103m after no-one claimed the jackpot in Tuesday’s draw.
Powerball tickets cost $2 each, while a Mega Millions ticket is priced at $1.
Many US states sell tickets for both draws, including the likes of California, Delaware, Ohio, Texas and Wisconsin.
