Mega Jackpots Await

In addition to the Megabucks victory, New Hampshire residents are currently eyeing an estimated total of $1.13 billion from the combined jackpots of Mega Millions and Powerball.

The Mega Millions jackpot is projected to reach $650 million, while the Powerball jackpot is expected to hit $485 million. Cash payouts for these draws are estimated at $308.6 million for Mega Millions and $232.4 million for Powerball, both before taxes.

Tri-State Megabucks remains a beloved game among our players, and we eagerly anticipate welcoming New Hampshire’s newest multi-millionaire. The excitement doesn’t stop here; with Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots on the line, our players have two fantastic chances to win big.”
