The Powerball jackpot has risen to an estimated $550 million after no one won the top prize in the Wednesday night drawing.
Meanwhile, what would have been the eighth largest Mega Millions jackpot ever now has the potential to become its fourth largest prize.
No one matched all six numbers, including the Mega Ball, in Tuesday night’s drawing, Mega Millions officials said early Wednesday.
The odds of winning Tuesday’s $361 million jackpot were more than 1 in 302 million. Those odds remain the same for Friday’s $418 million top prize.
