A ticket for the USA lottery Powerball sits on a counter in a store on Kenmare Street in Manhattan, New York.

This weekend you'll have not one but two chances at being a big victor in the upcoming lottery drawings.

At stake in Friday's 11 p.m. EST (0400 GMT Saturday) Mega Millions drawing is a $450 million prize, the fourth-largest in its history with a $281 million payout if the victor selects a lump-sum payment. The Powerball drawing is Saturday night.

Together they constituted the third-largest combined total.

At the KJ's Superstore in Malad, the lottery line has remained steady.

"There's definitely more traffic", Lenard said.

Last year, Americans spent $80.5bn (£59.3m) on lottery tickets and scratch cards, according to the North American Association of State and Provincial Lotteries.

Sen. "What prevents the enemies and their hostile actions is the spirit of courage, self-sacrifice and faith among the people". "If the Iranian dictatorship's history is any guide, we can expect more outrageous abuses in the days to come", she said.

Mega Millions is played in 44 states, Washington D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Puerto Rico also participates in Powerball. The winning numbers Tuesday were 1, 42, 47, 64 and 70, and the Mega Millions number was 22.

The largest Mega Millions prize was won March 30, 2012.

No one has won the big prize since a lucky customer matched all six numbers on October 13 to claim $42 million. Two ticket holders - one in Rhode Island, the other in MI, split a $42 million prize.

The estimated totals are before taxes are assessed.

If there's no victor, the next estimated jackpot for Mega Millions is $560 million.

Mega Millions would be the fourth largest jackpot in that game's history at $450 million if someone matches all six numbers on Friday night.

The largest Powerball jackpot to date was a $1.6bn (£1.2bn) payout, split three ways in January 2016.
