January Jackpots are Heating Up

Missouri Lottery players have some jumbo jackpots to vie for this January. The Powerball jackpot for tonight is up to $176 million, and the Mega Millions jackpot for Friday night rolled to $270 million.

“Missouri players have been very lucky,” said May Scheve Reardon, executive director of the Missouri Lottery. “They’ve won the second-most Powerball jackpots of all the game’s members. In fact, 30 people who played Powerball in Missouri have found themselves holding a winning ticket worth millions – a handful of those winners won prizes worth more than $200 million.”

Reardon noted that in addition to the big jackpot winners, these games also produce many other prize winners from $1 to $5 million.

“There are nine ways to win prizes in each of these games,” Reardon noted. “So be sure to check your tickets closely after the drawings.”

Powerball players have until 8:59 p.m. tonight to buy tickets for the $176 million jackpot, and Mega Millions players have until 8:59 p.m. Friday night to get a chance at the $270 million jackpot.

“It only takes one ticket to win,” Reardon said. “We want players to remember to play responsibly.”
