The next drawings are at 11 p.m Saturday for the Powerball and Tuesday night for Mega Millions.
N.C. officials said that in this past Tuesday's drawing, 93,726 tickets sold in North Carolina won a prize, ranging from $2 to $10,000. It would be the largest lottery prize in US history - and is bound to continue growing - and joins five other top 10 drawings in the last three years.
Officials did that by changing the potential number combinations, the Associated Press reported. which for Mega Millions increased the odds of winning the jackpot from one in 259 million to one in 302.5 million in October 2017. North Dakotans are on the opposite end of the spectrum, spending about $44 per year on the lottery, or the lowest average figure among residents of all 50 states.

The winning numbers for the approximately $430 million pot will be drawn Saturday night. They ramp up quickly throughout the day, Medenica says, and tend to peak between six and eight p.m., as people come home from work.
