The jackpot is about $343 million, with an estimated $215.3 million cash payout. Just behind that is the $648 million jackpot split by two winners on December 17, 2013.

Both lotteries are played in multiple states, including California.

Mega Millions' next drawing is scheduled for Tuesday evening, and Powerball's for Wednesday evening.

"The cold weather hasn't stopped those wanting to buy lottery tickets", said Corby Mead, manager of the Stogie's Discount Tobacco & Beer Downtown Store at 17 Washington Huntington.

The jackpot for tonight's Mega Millions drawing is at $361 million. Powerball hasn't had such a big prize since August, when a MA player won a $758.7 million jackpot.

In the 15-year history of Mega Million, four jackpots were won in the first week of the year.

Last January people from the Coast were driving to get tickets for the $929.9 million jackpot.

That means it is more likely for the grand total to roll into the next drawing - increasing jackpots.

Tickets for both games sell for $2. The numbers drawn were: 4 - 10 - 18 - 28 - 62, MB 7 Megaplier 2X.

Mega Millions draws on Tuesdays and Fridays at 11 p.m.
