The numbers were 28,30,39,59,70 with a Mega Ball of 10. The Powerball jackpot and Mega Millions jackpots are both over $400 million at the same time for the first time.

The latest increase to the jackpot would be the fifth largest in Powerball history if someone matched all six numbers Saturday night.

The jackpot victor can choose a cash option and receive $281 million.

Last time someone won the Mega Millions jackpot was October 13 and the Powerball last saw a victor October 25. Powerball odds are one in 292.2 million.

I think that is a form of respect you must have and, I repeat, sometimes, for example, Wenger forgets that in our last few games [against Arsenal], we finish the game with 10 men.

"Congratulations to Florida on their big jackpot win", said Mega Millions Lead Director and Maryland Lottery and Gaming Director Gordon Medenica.

This was the fourth largest jackpot in the 15-year history of Mega Millions.

Mega Millions drawings take place each Tuesday and Friday evening.

Kilbane says there were about $3 million in Mega Millions sales just for the one drawing earlier this week and about $4.5 million for the Powerball. "We're looking forward to Saturday's $570 million Powerball jackpot".
