Seven-time lottery game grand prize victor Richard Lustig tips on his advice to win the Mega Million and Powerball jackpots.

The numbers are 3, 57, 64, 68, 69 and the Powerball is 15.

A ticket sold in Lexington for Wednesday night's Powerball drawing matched the five white ball winning numbers but not the Powerball, winning the game's second prize of $1 million.

It's going to big couple of days for avid lottery players.

On October 8, an Elizabethtown woman won a $1 million Mega Millions prize. The odds for Mega Millions, meanwhile, is 302,575,350 to 1.

"Since these changes, three of the six largest Mega Millions jackpots have been paid out", he says.

A $150,000 winning ticket from Wednesday night's Powerball drawing was sold in Owensboro. And on July 24, a California office of 11 co-workers shared a $543 million jackpot, which is the largest-ever prize won in a Mega Millions game.

On top of that, Ascienzo adds, Mega Millions also doubled its ticket price to $2, which has also contributed to the growth. Powerball tickets are $2 and have to be purchased by 9:45 p.m. ET in most states.

The Mega Millions jackpot stands at $900 million, and will likely go up before Friday's drawing.
