What if you could win both?
Two lottery jackpots are up for grabs this week. The prizes add up to more than half a billion dollars, the Massachusetts Lottery said.
But don’t count on getting doubly lucky.
Still, someone — at least two someones, that is — could get lucky big-time this week.
If there’s a jackpot winner tonight at 11 p.m. in the Mega Millions drawing, the prize will be $170 million. A $350 million prize awaits the winner of the Powerball drawing at 10:59 p.m. Wednesday, the Lottery said.
Mega Millions tickets, at $1 each, are sold in 42 states. The game’s jackpot reached its record-high at $656 million in March 2012. Powerball’s $2 tickets are sold in 43 states; it reached its record jackpot at $588 million in November 2012, the Lottery said.
