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

First up is the Mega Millions game, which offers a $116 million jackpot in Tuesday night's drawing. [Update: There was no winner selected in the Mega Millions drawing on Tuesday. The jackpot is now $130 million for Friday's drawing]

But it's the PowerBall drawing on Wednesday night that has players seeing dollar signs. The multi-state game has now gone 22 drawings without a winner, pushing the current jackpot up to $343 million this week.

That makes it the 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.
