East TN Powerball player wins $2 million, jackpot rises to $620 million

A sign advertising tickets for the $1-billion Mega Millions lottery drawing is seen in Brooklyn New York U.S

Asked whether the Mega Millions could reach $2 billion, Medenica replied, "I'm not going to jinx it". Throw in last year's changes to the Mega Millions and - forget about it.

The potential Powerball jackpot has now climbed to $620 million for Wednesday's drawing.

Friday morning, the jackpot rose to $1 billion, with an estimated cash payout of more than $565 million. But like Mega Millions, no one took home Powerball and the pot continues to rise. Three of those have been among the 10 largest in the game's history. The next Mega Millions drawing is Tuesday with the jackpot expected to exceed the US record of $1.6 billion. Some of those prizes have been as low as $12 million.

The $2 million victor has not yet claimed their prize. Every time there's a victor, the jackpot resets to $40 million instead of $15 million. Players get five numbers from 1 to 70 and one Mega number between 1 and 25.
