History making double jackpots in lottery

Posted: Updated:

For the first time, U.S. lottery players will have a choice of games offering jackpots topping $300 million.

In the seven years since all U.S. lotteries began selling both Powerball and Mega Millions tickets, both games have never offered prizes so large at the same time.

The Powerball jackpot is up to $360 million dollars and the Mega Millions another $393 million dollars. Several people were in line Friday at Colorado Springs area gas stations.

The Mega Millions drawing is Friday at 7:30 p.m. The Powerball drawing will take place Saturday night.
