The lottery jackpot numbers just keep climbing.

Almost $800 million is up for grabs between the Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots.

Mega Millions made a chance in October, giving you more numbers to choose from and making it harder to hit the jackpot.

The Mega Millions drawing scheduled for 11 PM ET Tuesday has an estimated jackpot of $343 million, as of around noon ET, and the Powerball drawing scheduled for 10:59 PM Wednesday has an estimated prize of $440 million. Mega Millions has odds of one in 302.6 million and Powerball is slightly better at one in 292.2 million. The cash option on the prize is an estimated $225.9 million.

Whether you're a lottery player ot not, you might want to buy some tickets.

"I usually don't play unless the jackpots get to six figures", he said. The largest Powerball jackpot on record was $1.586 billion, which was won last January.

Lottery fever is raging across the country with big money up for grabs in the next Mega Millions and Powerball drawings. It was sold in MA. Multipliers are available in all states offering the games except California, which bans the type of fixed prize payouts awarded by multipliers.
