For the first time in lottery history, players have the chance to become a multi-millionaire in not one but two lottery game favorites.

For the first time on record, the Powerball jackpot and the Mega Millions jackpot have both reached over $400 million at the same time.

With no winning tickets called on Wednesday, January 3rd, for either game, the Powerball jackpot has now risen to $570 million, while the Mega Millions jackpot has reached $450 million.

The drawing for the Mega Millions jackpot is set for Friday, January 5th, and Powerball players will get their shot at millions with a drawing on Saturday, January 6th.

The Mega Millions has not produced a jackpot winner since October and will continue to grow along with the Powerball until the winning numbers are called.
