Mega Millions, meanwhile, has a comparatively smaller - but still massive - jackpot of $306 million after Tuesday's drawing came and went, with another opportunity to win scheduled for Friday.
It could be an unforgettable New Year for Michigan Lottery players with large Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots up for grabs.
The jackpot prizes for both Powerball and Mega Millions have climbed over $300 million. Tickets cost $2 each. The jackpot was $337 million. Mega Millions tickets are sold in 43 states plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
You've got two ways to win more than $300 million this week.

The Powerball numbers were 3, 9, 16, 56, 60 and the Powerball was 3. Powerball, which changed its organization quite a long while back, has chances of 1 of every 292.2 million.
Powerball numbers are drawn every every Wednesday and Saturday night at 10:59 p.m. ET.
The next drawing for Mega Millions is 11 p.m. EST Friday, Dec. 29.
All things considered, the situation is anything but favorable for players now that the two lotteries have harder chances for their separate jackpots.
