Bluebird Liquor is considered to be one of the luckiest stores in California, since multiple winning tickets worth millions of dollars have been sold at the store. Both drawings will happen before the end of the year - the last Mega Millions drawing is at 11 p.m. ET on Friday, and the final Powerball drawing of the year is at 10:59 p.m. ET on Saturday. The Mega Millions is drawn at 8 p.m. The last chance to buy Powerball tickets is Saturday, December 20th at 7:00pm PT, and the drawing is at 9:59pm PT that night.

To play Mega Millions, buy the ticket at one of the 21,000 California lottery retail locations.

The jackpot there has jumped to $384 million, and even if a player doesn't win big, there's a chance to win something. Also, make sure that if someone picked up a ticket for you, that they haven't signed it first.

The odds of winning the Powerball jackpothave been estimated at around 1 in 292.2 million.

Mega Millions is played in 44 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

But Joshua Haffner of Haffner Law (https://haffnerlawyers.com), who has handled two of the largest lottery fraud cases in United States history, warns super large jackpots can bring unanticipated disputes.

The record was a $1.58 billion jackpot in January of 2016.

As with all other Georgia Lottery games, proceeds from Mega Millions and Powerball will benefit education in the state of Georgia.
