Ohio Lottery officials report brisk sales at the state’s Mega Millions and Powerball retailers right now.

The Ohio Lottery’s Marie Kilbane says the jackpot for tonight’s Mega Millions drawing is $450 million and tomorrow’s Powerball jackpot is $550 million. She says higher jackpots mean more ticket sales.

“You know if these jackpots don’t hit, sales and interest will go through the roof. I would bet we will hit a billion dollars pretty soon in terms of jackpots. It’s a crazy time when the jackpots get this high.”

Kilbane says there were about $3 million dollars in Mega Millions sales just for the one drawing earlier this week and about $4 and a half million for the Powerball.
