Two triple-digit lottery jackpots are there for the taking

For several weeks there have been no top winners in the multi-state Mega-Millions and Powerball lottery games.  Tuesday night’s MegaMillion’s top prize has climbed to 140 Million dollars.  Wednesday night’s Powerball jackpot now sits at 155 Million dollars. 

The odds for winning the top prizes are astronomical with the Mega-Millions odds at 1 in about 258 million and Powerball at 1 in about 292 million.
