Mega Millions and Powerball Jackpots Rollover at the Weekend

There was another US Mega Millions rollover on Friday so there is an estimated jackpot of $83 million up for grabs on Tuesday night.  That's a major chunk of cash, but Wednesday's US Powerball Jackpot makes the present Mega Millions top prize look like small change.

The Powerball jackpot hasn't been won since Saturday, August 9, 2014, when one lucky ticket-holder bagged the $90 million top prize. There's been 12 rollovers since then and the present Powerball jackpot has grown to $225 million.

Over in Europe the Tuesday's EuroMillions drawing has an estimated jackpot of €15 million. That's not particularly large for a EuroMillions Pot, but on Friday, October 3, 2014, there will be a much bigger prize to play for because a Superdraw has been scheduled so there is a guaranteed jackpot of €100 million.
