Do you play the lottery? If so, you might want to head to the convenience store to snag yourself another ticket. As of today (1/5/21) the Mega Millions and Powerball both have jackpots right now of more than $400 million each.

Tonight’s (Tuesday) Mega Millions jackpot stands at $432 million, while tomorrow’s (Wednesday) Powerball jackpot is about $410 million. But as always, before you get too excited, just remember that officials say the odds of matching all five numbers and the Powerball number is 1 in about 293 million. (Better start praying to the lottery Gods!)

I am now debating to get a ticket. This would be quite the way to start off the new year…it would certainly make things a whole lot easier!
