    MARK RALSTON | AFP | Getty Images The Mega Millions jackpot just won't quit. After no ticket matched all six numbers drawn Tuesday night, the top prize has surged to $1.02 billion for Friday night's drawing.

    Founder and CEO of Raising Canes bought 50,000 Mega Millions tickets to help give his employees the chance to win the $830 million prize on Tuesday's drawing. Todd Graves and co-CEO AJ Kumaran headed to separate gas stations on Monday to purchase one ticket per employee at Raising Cane's. If one ticket is the winner of the jackpot, the cash - which comes to $480 million after taxes and deductions - will be split among every employee in the company.  That means each would receive around $9,600 if one of the tickets was to win.   'We just wanted to have a little fun and maybe even a little bit of money in the process,' Kumaran told DailyMail.com.  Graves and Kumaran spent nearly eight hours at the gas stations personally purchasing the tickets with a bag full of cash.  Tuesday's jackpot is the third biggest in Mega Millions history, and the fourth biggest in US lottery history.   'It took us four different banks and about two hours to get all the money in a little bag and then go into two...
    Justin Sullivan | Getty Images The Powerball jackpot just won't quit. Through 38 drawings over three months, no ticket has managed to match all six numbers drawn. For Monday night's drawing, the jackpot is now $540 million. Yet the prize still isn't enough to vault it into the top 10 largest lottery jackpots. The crown goes to a 2016 Powerball jackpot worth $1.58 billion when three winners — from California, Florida and Tennessee — hit the motherlode. Not far behind is a $1.53 billion Mega Millions jackpot in 2018 that was claimed by a sole winner in South Carolina. To enter the top 10, a jackpot would have to reach more than $648 million — that's the amount in 10th place, which was split in 2013 by two Mega Millions players, one from California, the other from Georgia. Of course, there are winners of smaller amounts in each drawing. In the last Powerball pull, held Saturday, a ticket sold in Florida landed $10 million in the game's "Double Play," which not all jurisdictions offer. Additionally, someone in Maryland won $2...

    DENVER (CBS4)– Coloradans watched as the Powerball and Mega Millions jackpots broke records last month. Together, the jackpots were worth a total of $1.7 billion. From Jan. 2 to 22 (when the Mega Millions was won), the Colorado Lottery sold $33,624,612 worth of Powerball and Mega Millions tickets. That’s a 526% increase from the same time last year. On CBSN Denver, we talked to the director of the Colorado Lottery, Tom Seaver. “These jackpots are a really big deal because they help a number of different audiences,” says Seaver. “It’s really exciting for our players. It’s also exciting for our beneficiaries because all of them received over $13 million in additional revenue. Finally, it’s good for our retailers, because they receive commissions on the tickets they sell, and they received over $2 million in additional commission.” (credit: CBS) A total of $13,113,599 from ticket sales will go directly to Lottery beneficiaries. Of that, Great Outdoors Colorado receives half ($6,556,800), the Conservation Trust Fund gets 40% ($5,245,440), and Colorado Parks and Wildlife receives 10% (1,311,359).

    SACRAMENTO (CBS13/AP) — This week, lottery players have another chance to win big since there were no winners of the top prize for both the Powerball and Mega Millions jackpots in their most recent drawings. No one beat the odds in Friday’s Mega Millions drawing, so the jackpot grew to an estimated $850 million.

The listed jackpot amounts refer to winners who opt for an annuity, paid over 30 years. Winners nearly always choose cash prizes, which for Powerball would be $546 million.
