For the first time ever, both the Powerball and Mega Millions lottery jackpots have risen to more than $300 million simultaneously, USA Today reported.

Tuesday night’s Mega Millions drawing had no winners for its $350 million jackpot. The next drawing on Friday night will now offer $382 million, with a $238 million cash option amount.

The Wednesday night Powerball jackpot is now set at $307 million, with a one-time cash payout estimated at about $193.2 million.

A record $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot was shared by winning ticket-holders in Florida, California and Tennessee in January 2016.

The odds of winning a Mega Millions jackpot are one in 258.9 million.
