Almost $700 million in lottery jackpots up for grabs this weekend

The Mega Millions jackpot has reached $306 million, the Colorado Lottery's website shows.

Powerball, Mega Millions jackpots rise Not to be outdone, Mega Millions will also hold a drawing on Friday for its $306 million top prize.

The largest lottery prize in US history was a $1.6 billion Powerball jackpot, which was split between three ticket-holders in January 2016, CNN reported. A ticket sold in Washington matched the five white balls and included the optional Megaplier, which means that player won the Match 5 second prize worth $4 million, officials said. A "Power Play" option that multiplies non-jackpot prizes by up to 10 times to a maximum of $2 million may be added to any Powerball play for only $1. Her win was the largest jackpot ever won on a single ticket in US history.

Mega Millions changed its format in October, sending the odds of picking all six numbers to one in 302.6 million from one in 258.9 million, CNN noted. To win the jackpot, a player must match all six winning numbers in a drawing.

The numbers drawn were 3, 9, 16, 56, 60 with a Powerball number of 3.

The move was similar to one made by Powerball in October 2015.
