STORYLINE:
One lucky winner could be hours away from taking home one of the largest jackpots in Mega Millions or Powerball history.
In more than two months without a winner, both the Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots have rolled over to an estimated combined total of nearly $1 billion.
The Mega Millions jackpot stands at $450 million, with a $281.2 million lump-sum option. The Powerball jackpot has reached $570 million, with a $358.5 million lump-sum payout.
If a player wins both jackpots, the haul would be around $1-billion. Rudy’s Stop and Shop in Rosenberg, TX, claims it sells the most lottery and scratch off tickets in the state. A steady stream of customers queued in line to buy both Powerball and Mega Millions tickets Friday morning.
