Columbia, SC - South Carolinians and Georgians can play Friday night for a Mega Millions® jackpot of $291 million, the largest this year. Nationally, Powerball® is capturing some of the spotlight running up a $100 million jackpot for Saturday.

For $1, Mega Millions® seems the better deal, offering almost triple the jackpot for half the price of a Powerball® ticket.

In a state that’s produced seven Powerball® jackpot winners and zero Mega Millions® wins, South Carolinians are beginning to notice what Mega Millions® is offering.  Right now, that’s $157 million in cash.

Tuesday night’s Mega Millions® drawing saw close to 45,000 winners in South Carolina, 10,000 more than the previous drawing and four times the number of winner’s Powerball® had on Wednesday.

But to bring home South Carolina’s first Mega Millions® jackpot win, someone will have to overcome steep odds of 1 in 259 million.

The Lottery urges everyone to please, play responsibly.
