Two lottery drawings this weekend will be for potential prizes totaling nearly $800 million.
The Mega Millions jackpot for Friday is a $444 million annuity or $281.1 million in cash. The Powerball jackpot for Saturday is $350 million in payments or $221 million cash.
“We’ve had six players from North Carolina win a jackpot so far,” said Mark Michalko, executive director of the N.C. Education Lottery. “We’d love to see another winner this weekend.”
Both drawings are at 11 p.m.
