LEE COUNTY, Fla. -- Two multi-state lottery games are offering jackpots of more than $100 million this weekend.

First up is the Mega Millions game, which offers a $130 million jackpot in Friday night's drawing.

But it's the PowerBall drawing on Saturday night that has players seeing dollar signs. The multi-state game has now gone 24 drawings without a winner, pushing the current jackpot up to $373 million this week.

That eclipses the previous largest PowerBall jackpot since a ticket worth $350 million was sold in North Carolina in June 2019.

Players must select five numbers between 1 through 69, and one PowerBall number from 1 through 26, and have them selected in the drawing at 11 p.m. Tickets sales stop at 10 p.m. the night of the drawing.

Remember, you can watch all the drawings live on Fox 4, the official Florida Lottery station in Southwest Florida.
