  • More than $600 million up for grabs in two holiday jackpots

The Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots total over $600 million, just in time for Christmas. CBS Boston reports the cash option is worth an estimated $193.7 million. The odds of winning the Mega Millions Jackpot are quite slim, but even so, people are still gifting the tickets for their friends and family.

Tickets for both games are $2 each.

If the money isn't claimed by late April, the money will return to the 44 states that hold Mega Millions lotteries.

This week's Mega Millions lottery drawing could turn out to be a major Christmas stocking stuffer. The numbers were announced on October 23 and as of last week, the victor has not come forward to claim their prize which has left lottery officials baffled, The State reported.
