Lottery fever is currently burning as this country's two biggest lottery games have nearly $500 million in jackpot money up for grabs in the next two days. Tuesday night is the next drawing for Mega Millions with Wednesday night set for Powerball.

The Mega Millions jackpot is now up to $303 million and Powerball's top prize is now $193 million, following weekend drawings that produced no tickets hitting all the winning numbers.

In non-lottery states, such as Nevada, large lottery jackpots such as those offered this week, usually route players to border states, such as California or Arizona, where players can participate.
