Mega Millions and Powerball Prizes Rollover

The jackpot prizes of the two big (US) multi-state games, Mega Millions and Powerball, grew a little bigger at the weekend when nobody managed to match all the right numbers.

Five Mega Millions players successfully matched five numbers, but not the Powerball, in the Friday night Mega Millions draw; and several Powerball players matched five numbers in Saturday's Powerball drawing, but the big prizes have rolled over to give lottery-loving punters a chance of an even bigger win later this week.

The next Powerball draw is on Wednesday, and the estimated jackpot is $215 million; but Mega Millions hopefuls need only wait until 23:00 (EST) on Tuesday night to find out if they have picked the right numbers to pick up an (estimated) $94 million jackpot win.
