CLEVELAND, Ohio (NEXSTAR/WJW) – It would be quite a start to the new year to collect on one of the giant lottery jackpots up for grabs.

With no grand prize winner for several weeks, the Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots have continued to grow.

The Mega Millions jackpot climbed to $447 million on Tuesday, making it among the top ten highest Mega Millions jackpots to date.. On October 23, 2018, Mega Millions set a milestone with a $1.537 billion jackpot; only the second time any lottery prize passed the billion dollar mark.

The next Mega Millions drawing is Tuesday night.

The Powerball jackpot is up to $410 million, its highest jackpot since March 2019, when a $768.4 million jackpot was won in Wisconsin. Its next drawing is Wednesday night.

The odds of a single ticket winning either jackpot are long — 1 in 302 million for Mega Millions and 1 in 293 million for Powerball. The overall chance of winning any prize is 1 in 24.87.
