Mega Millions jackpot grows to $343 million after latest drawing

Ohio Lottery retailers will likely see lines of bettors hoping they choose the winning Powerball or Mega Millions numbers

Nobody won the huge $306 million jackpot from Friday night's Mega Millions drawing.

An estimated $343 million jackpot is up for grabs in the next Mega Millions drawing on Tuesday after no victor was declared for Friday night's $306 million drawing.

The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot is one in more than 292 million, according to the lottery's website, while the odds of winning the Mega Millions jackpot is one in more than 302 million.

Mega Millions goes first, with a drawing on Tuesday evening, while Powerball follows on Wednesday if there is no victor Saturday night. There have been eight jackpots worth at least $336 million.

The highest all-time Mega Millions jackpot was $656 million, claimed by one person in 2012.

In August, an IL player won a $393 million jackpot.

The next Powerball drawing is Saturday, Dec. 30, at 10:59 p.m. ET.

More than $640 million is still up for grabs in the nation's two biggest lotteries, CBS Boston reports.
