Tickets for the Mega Millions jackpot must be purchased by 10 p.m. Tuesday night for the 11 p.m. drawing. Tickets are $1 and are available at lottery retailers statewide.
Tickets for Wednesday's Powerball® drawing must be purchased by 9:59 p.m. for the 10:59 p.m. drawing. Powerball tickets are $2 a play.
Odds of winning either jackpot are about 1 in 176 million.
