Florida Lottery Has Two Huge Jackpot Drawings Tonight

Florida Lottery Has Two Huge Jackpot Drawings Tonight

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Yes, the chances of hitting either jackpot are very very slim. But for a dollar a piece you can get in on both the Florida Lotto and Powerball drawings. Tonight's Powerball jackpot, which is a national drawing, is up to $160 million.

Our state's very own lottery, the Florida Lotto, is now up to $34 million.

Neither are records on their own, but, "What's unusual is that we have such a high jackpot on Lotto at the same time there is a high Powerball jackpot," said Florida Lottery Jacksonville district manager Steven Galaydick.

Right now the $160 million Powerball prize is the highest in the country, edging out the other very large MegaMillions prize ($99 million).
