As both jackpots sit near the $400 million mark for the upcoming draws on Friday and Saturday, someone is going to be stepping into 2021 with wads full of cash and a massive celebration to match.The jackpots for the two games simultaneously swelled this high back in 2018, where they added up to nearly $1 billion. It was only the second time in history that two US lottery games combined to reach at least $800 million.Depending on whether someone scoops up either of the jackpots this weekend, it could be the third time.The Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots are also the first- and second-highest jackpots in the world right now, respectively. The third-largest jackpot in the world is Italy's SuperEnalotto jackpot valued at €84.9 million (US$104.41 million).Mega Millions began growing Sept. 18 as a $20 million jackpot and has rolled 30 times. Prior to a rule change brought on by slowing sales, jackpots used to start at $40 million. Before Tuesday's drawing, the Mega Millions jackpot sat at $376 million. Without a winner, the jackpot has rolled to $401 million for the next drawing on Fri., Jan. 1, 2021 at 11:00 pm EST with a cash value of $305.4 million.Meanwhile, the Powerball jackpot started growing Sept. 19 as a $20 million jackpot and has also rolled 30 times. Just like Mega Millions, the game had its $40 million starting jackpots reduced to $20 million as result of the coronavirus' impact on sales. Prior to the drawing on Wednesday, Powerball boasted an equally mouthwatering $363 million jackpot and has risen to $384 million with a $295.4 million cash value after no one won, which will be up for grabs on Sat., Jan. 2, 2021 at 10:59 pm EST.The cash values for the two jackpots are the real stars of the show, as they rank as the 18th- and 19th-largest US lottery jackpot cash values of all time. The annuity jackpots rank as 28th-largest in US lottery history for Mega Millions, while the upcoming Powerball annuity jackpot is the 33rd-largest of all time.See below for the top-25 rankings for both annuity and cash values.The last time the Mega Millions jackpot surpassed the $400 million mark was in June of this year, which was claimed by an anonymous couple from Glendale, Arizona. It was the largest payout to any Arizona Lottery player ever and was the 11th-largest Mega Millions jackpot in history.The Powerball jackpot last reached an amount this big back in January, when it climbed to $394 million and was finally won by Florida resident Sheryll Goedert. The cash value of $276.5 million was the 20th-largest lottery jackpot cash value ever claimed in the United States at the time it was won.Mega Millions and Powerball tickets are $2 per play and can be purchased at lottery retailers in 44 states, plus the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. (Mega Millions is not offered in Puerto Rico.)Players looking for a nearby lottery retailer — or that out-of-the-way retailer with a smaller line — are encouraged to use Lottery Places, an app for iOS, Android, and Windows that can locate the nearest lottery retailers in every jurisdiction that sells Powerball and Mega Millions. The helpful app can locate lottery retailers in the United States, the United Kingdom, Mexico, much of Canada, and the Caribbean.Mega Millions players can multiply prizes with the Megaplier option for an additional $1 per play. In several (but not all) states, Mega Millions also offers a new optional $3 wager called Just the Jackpot that allows players to receive two entries for a chance to win the game's jackpot prize only.Powerball players can multiply prizes with the Power Play option for an additional $1 per play.Top 25 United States lottery jackpots of all timeThe following list actually shows the top 33
