Powerball winning numbers drawn, jackpot at $307M

While there was no jackpot victor in Wednesday night's Powerball drawing, a winning ticket for $50,000 was sold on Hilton Head Island, according to the South Carolina Education Lottery.

What are your odds of winning both?

Mega Millions offers two jackpot payment options: the $393 million annuity prize paid out as one immediate payment followed by 29 annual graduated payments; or the cash option, which is approximately $246 million. On a percentage basis, you have only a 0.000000000000000013% chance of holding both winning tickets. Those are also about the same odds as being struck by a meteorite and attacked by a shark - at the same time, according to CNNMoney.

But that doesn't stop people from trying.

Here are the 25 stores with the most lottery winners of more than $10,000 in Rhode lsand in the past two years.

That's only for those who win jackpots of a $1 million or more. Tickets for that game cost $2.

Powerball and Mega Millions are played in 44 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. "Have fun playing the lottery, but do not forget to play with your head, not over your head".
