COLUMBIA, SC (May 16, 2014) – This weekend sets up back-to-back jackpot drawings at or over $100 million. Tonight South Carolinians can play for a chance at a $136 million Mega Millions® jackpot and tomorrow night try for the $100 million Powerball® top prize.

“Big jackpots are thrilling, and we want players to have fun but to, please, play responsibly,” said the Lottery’s Executive Director Paula Harper Bethea.

Mega Millions® Jackpot - $136 MILLION, cash value $77 million
Tickets must be purchased by 10 p.m. tonight for the 11 p.m. Mega Millions® drawing. Tickets are $1 and available wherever tickets are sold. South Carolina has yet to produce a Mega Millions® jackpot winner. Players may purchase Megaplier® for an extra dollar. The Megaplier® option will multiply non-jackpot prizes by the Megaplier® number drawn (2-5).

Powerball® Jackpot - $100 MILLION, cash value $59 million
Tickets for Saturday’s Powerball® drawing must be purchased by 9:59 p.m. for the 10:59 p.m. drawing. Powerball tickets are $2. South Carolina has sold seven Powerball® jackpot winning tickets. For an extra dollar, players may purchase PowerPlay®, which will increase any non-jackpot prizes won by 2, 3, 4, or 5 times and the Match 5 prize to $2 million.

Good luck, South Carolina!
