Tonight's Mega Millions jackpot is estimated at $418 million (1.5.18) and tomorrow's Powerball jackpot is estimated at $460 million (1.6.18). Strategies to win vary from the numbers that surround loved ones birthdays anniversaries and ages to the "quick" picker that lets the machine do all the work.  But if you are headstrong in winning either jackpot there is a way.  For a guaranteed winning of Saturdays' Powerball you'd need to purchase 292,201,338 tickets that will cover all possible Powerball number combinations.  At $2 each you need to spend $584.4 million to guarantee a win of $460 million, resulting in a $124 million loss and that if no one else matches all the numbers too! If you take lump sum of $291 million, you’d be spending a little less than double your pre-tax winnings.  However there is some help you can use to pick numbers. LottoNumbers.com does tracks the world’s most commonly pulled numbers, so it could give you an edge in the 1 in 292.2 million odds of a single ticket winning! So there's a chance!
