Weekend lotteries: $790 Million up for grabs

This would bring some peace of mind: winning one of the lotteries this weekend.

The Megamillion drawing tonight is worth an estimated $190 million, and the Powerball is the highest it’s ever been: $600 million. That’s a total of $790 million up for grabs.

What are the odds of picking the winning numbers in both? One in 30-quadrillion (30,000,000,000,000,000) … that’s 30 with 15 zeros after it.

One of the reasons the jackpots have grown so fast is California joined the lottery states in April.
