Personally, I invested about $20 dollars into this last go round. Dreaming of winning JUST A PIECE of the $1 Billion dollar jackpot. Just a little. I didn't need to win it all. I was even in the office pool as well. And last night, feverishly checking to see if I got maybe a couple of the numbers. Nope! Maybe one here or there. But I wasn't the only one.

While there was no jackpot winner on Friday, lottery officials said there were 15 'second-tier' winning tickets of at least $1 million. And we now also know that TUESDAY, the Mega Millions Jackpot will be worth $1.6 BILLION DOLLARS. That's of course BILLION with a "B". Holy smokes people. Again, I don't want it all. A piece would be nice. And experts say, all you need is roughly about $30 million to be just rich enough without all the "super rich headaches".  (NBC NEWS)

Here's the breakdown by the numbers:

Powerball and Mega Millions Jackpots combined = $2 Billion Dollars

Powerball Jackpot for tonight (Saturday, October 20th) = $470 Million (Cash Payout $268.6 Million Dollars)

Mega Millions Jackpot for Tuesday = $1.6 Billion Dollars (Cash Payout $904 Million Dollars)

The chance of winning both is at least 1 in 88 quadrillion. That’s 88 followed by 15 zeros.

Good luck.

May the odds forever be in your favor.
