It is important to note that the jackpot amounts are estimated amounts provided by the lotteries and can be somewhat higher by the time the next drawing occurs.
The rising Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots were last seen growing to these heights last year during the pandemic when the starting jackpot amount halved to $20 million and guaranteed increases were cut down.
The winning numbers for Saturday's Powerball drawings were 35, 36, 39, 45, and 57, with Powerball number 11 and 2X as the Power Play multiplier.
The Mega Millions winning numbers for September 17, 2021, were 17, 32, 40, 59, and 61, with Mega Ball number 18, with 3X as the Megaplier multiplier.
The Powerball drawings will take place tonight at 10:59 pm EST. Whereas the next Mega Millions draw is all set to draw on Tuesday, September 24, 2021.
All the best!
