Live results for $450M Mega Millions drawing on 01/05/18

Lottery Fever Sweeps Stateline, Combined Jackpot $1B

Mega Millions drawing is scheduled for one night before a Powerball drawing that will be worth at least $550 million.

"A lot of people don't realize how much the lottery has contributed to scholarships in Arkansas but it's really really significant", she said.

"I believe in luck, you know?"

You'd be surprised how many winning tickets are never turned in.

The winning numbers selected Wednesday night were 2, 18, 37, 39 and 42, and the Powerball number was 12.

Trump calls for legal action on Huma Abedin, James Comey
While assailing what he called "the Deep State", Trump did not note that the Justice Department is now run by his appointees. Late last week the Federal Bureau of Investigation released thousands of emails belonging to top Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

You probably can't, but unfortunately, you probably also won't get the chance to, especially if you're shooting for the moon and hoping to win both the Powerball and the Mega Millions. Stanley Thompson says he would be in disbelief if all of his numbers matched. "So if I win, I guarantee I will start a funding specifically for those two".

Mega Millions, which is now valued at $450 million, will be drawn tonight, January 5; Powerball will be drawn Saturday, Jan 6. Those purchasing at Schnucks say that kind of money would change their lives. "Obviously the tax would take quite a bit of it, but the rest of it, I would give away to charity", echoed Travers. "[I could take care of] my kids, my grandkids, everyone". The Powerball Jackpot has reached $570 million. The odds of winning the Mega Millions jackpot is one in 302.5 million.

I don't play Powerball because there are too many numbers and my chances of winning are too slim. And nearly no one wins either. "A shot in the dark, but you have to try". To win the jackpot, a player has to match all five numbers plus the Mega number.

To put that in perspective, you're more likely to get struck by lightning, become president of the United States, get bitten by a shark or crushed by an asteroid, among many other more probable zany events, than win either the Powerball or the Mega Millions.
