On Friday, May 10, California Lottery officials exclaimed,
"The weekend is here, and along with it are two Lottery jackpots worth a combined total of $424 million! That’s right! It’s time to start dreaming of what you’d do with a fortune as the Mega Millions jackpot checks in at $154 million for tonight’s draw, and the Powerball jackpot is now worth more than a quarter of a billion dollars!"
Since the May 10 Mega Millions numbers were drawn just moments ago, it's still too early to know if there's a Mega Millions jackpot winner or not.
