    The Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots are one step closer to crossing the $400-million threshold together after there was still no winning ticket in Wednesday night's Powerball drawing.

    The top prize for the Powerball drawing was an estimated $307 million with winning numbers 12-30-36-47-62. The Powerball was 9 and the Power Play was 4.

    The Powerball numbers will be drawn again Saturday night with an estimated prize of $356 million. The Mega Millions will be drawn again Friday night, with an estimated $382 million jackpot. That's the sixth-largest Mega Millions in history.

    This is the first time both lotteries have topped $300 million at the same time, and now they are even closer to crossing $400 million together.
