By  | 

The jackpots for two major lotteries are reaching incredible heights.

South Dakotans have the chance to win big bucks in the new year with a Mega Millions or Powerball jackpot.

The Mega Millions drawing reached $306 million last Friday.

The Powerball was $384 million on Saturday.

Lottery officials say this marks just the second time that both the Mega Millions and Powerball each exceeded $300 million jackpots at the same time.

Tuesday night's Mega Millions drawing features a $343 million jackpot, and Wednesday's Powerball jackpot is a whopping $440 million.

Tickets for both lotteries cost $2 each.
