Winners could become $337 million richer if they hit Wednesday's jackpot, with an option to take home over $210 million in cash.

Tickets for the Mega Millions and Powerball sell for $2 each.

Outside of the big holiday drawing, Kansas Lottery is hoping one of its players will win millions of dollars before the new year.

One ticket sold in MI matched four white balls and the Mega ball while also playing the Megaplier to win $40,000 in the drawing. The amount won can vary if the victor chooses the Power Play option for an extra dollar, which adds a multiplier to the prize.
