Everything is expensive right now! Gas. Groceries. Housing. Winning the next Powerball or Mega Millions jackpot would certainly make things a little bit easier! 

Neither the Powerball or Mega Millions produced a winner over the weekend, which means the jackpots continue to swell! Powerball has gone 34 drawings without a winner which means Monday night's jackpot is sitting at $650 million with a $328.3 million jackpot. If someone hits the jackpot, this would be the ninth-largest jackpot in the game's history.

On the Mega Millions side, there hasn't been a jackpot winner since April 18. That puts Tuesday night's jackpot at just shy of half-a-billion dollars. At press time, it's sitting at $480 million with a cash option of $240.7 million.

If you want to buy a ticket for the upcoming draw, you have until 7:55 MT/6:55 PT the night of the draw to purchase your ticket from an Idaho Lottery retailer.

Idaho Produces a BIG Mega Millions Winner on 4th of July

While there hasn't been a Mega Millions winner in quite some time, there have been tickets that matched at least five of the numbers for the draw sold, including here in Idaho. Last week we told you that a ticket matching the first five numbers WITH the Megaplier option was sold in Idaho.

Since the Megaplier was 3x for that drawing, the person holding that ticket is $3 million richer. We now know that the ticket was sold in Oneida County.

When we purchased our tickets for this week's draws, we told our cashier that one of these games was going to allow us to retire early. Will it? We'll have to wait and see, but if you're hoping for the same thing here are some of the luckiest locations to buy your tickets in the Boise area!
