Lottery officials are citing strong sales for the reason Friday's Mega Millions jackpot has jumped to $393 million. The jackpot has been growing since it was last won on April 28. Lottery officials say this is the first time that the jackpots in Powerball and Mega Millions have simultaneously topped the $300 million mark.

No Powerball tickets matched all the winning numbers selected Wednesday night, so the jackpot climbed to $356 million for Saturday's drawing.

According to Allstate's data science team - about 1 in 75 quadrillion.

And this is to say nothing of the various legal and constitutional complications that would immediately become clear. Malka is an associate professor of psychology at Yeshiva University.

The chance of winning both jackpots? "That's why we emphasize responsible play".

Auerbach, who said he never buys lottery tickets himself, calculated the very long odds of a double win not for work but because "it's fun to do this rather than run numbers about premiums and insurance".

If you decide to go for it, Mega Millions tickets will cost you $1 each. The next drawing is Friday night. The Powerball runs every Wednesday and Saturday before The Channel 2 Action News Nightbeat at 11.
