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 33 drawings without a winner which means Wednesday night's jackpot is sitting at $687 million with a $327.3 million jackpot. There were only five jackpot winners in 2023.

On the Mega Millions side, there hasn't been a jackpot winner since December 8. That means Friday night's jackpot is the sixth largest in the game's history! At press time, it's sitting at $977 million with a cash option of $461 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 Hasn't Had a Mega Millions Winner in a LONG Time

People who've been playing the lottery in Idaho for years are very familiar with two of the state's big Powerball winners. Why? Be cause Pam Hiatt and Brad Duke bought the tickets that produced their good fortune at the SAME Jackson's location, a decade apart.

People are less familiar with Holy Lahti, the only Idahoan to ever win the Mega Millions jackpot. She won in 2011 in and you can read her story HERE.

Tuesday's drawing could bring that Mega Millions drought to an end. 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!
