  • 'New Year's Eve' Powerball rolls over to $384 million; Mega Millions at $306 million, too

The jackpot was estimated at $384 million, with a $239.7 million cash value.

Powerball's jackpot is now at an estimated $384 million after no victor was crowned on Wednesday.

The jackpots of two adversary lotteries-the Powerball and Mega Millions-have each expanded to more than $300 million, giving players two opportunities to win when drawings are held Friday and Saturday.

Tickets are $2, and sales time cut-offs vary by state but are usually one to two hours before the drawing. The Mega Millions and Powerball lotteries have a combined jackpot of $690 million.

There was only one Match 5 + Power Play victor for $2 million in Georgia. The Stebbins's jackpot holds the record for the largest Mega Millions prize ever won in MI.

Mega Millions changed its format in October, sending the odds of picking all six numbers to one in 302.6 million from one in 258.9 million, CNN noted.

The winning numbers for Wednesday's Powerball for the grand prize of $337 million are 3, 9, 16, 56, 60 and the Powerball is 3.

Powerball is played in 44 states, and since each one has its own validity period, here is a list to find out the validity period to claim the prize in your state. To win the jackpot, a player must match every number-including the Powerball.

Powerball tickets are $2 per play, and drawings are always Wednesday and Saturday evenings. The Mega Millions drawings are held Tuesday and Friday at 11 p.m. ET.
