How to find the current amounts for the US lottery jackpots

Are you interested in playing the lottery in the US? If you are then you absolutely want to know what the current jackpots are because that’s probably going to play a role in whether or not you buy a ticket (or how many tickets you buy). Luckily, finding out the current jackpot amounts is actually easier than you might think. And we’re going to talk about a couple of the easiest and most effective ways to make sure that you’re prepared for the game.

Check the paper

If you’re a local, meaning you live in the United States, you can check the current jackpot amounts in the newspaper. Now, traditionally this would be done in a physical, printed paper, but that’s not necessary anymore. You can find the ‘paper’ online as well. So, visiting the website of a newspaper within the United States can also be a great way to check out the current jackpots, especially for the largest games, like the Powerball and Mega Millions.

The downside is that you’re only going to see the latest winning numbers and the current jackpot. You won’t get any additional information about the game in these sources.

Check the web

There are other websites that you can take a look at when it comes to finding the current jackpots. In fact, there are a lot of websites that offer this information and let you see what the most recent winning numbers are as well. You can check the lottery website, for example, which will tell you more information about each lottery, but you’ll need to look up each one individually.

The downside here is that you have to go to each of the individual lottery websites in order to find the numbers for each game. Or you’ll need to go to different websites to get additional information rather than getting it all in one place.


If you want to get all of the information and have it quickly, however, you can also go to You’ll be able to find the current jackpots for not only the US games, but also for games that are being played all around the world. That’s going to give you even more information and help you decide which games you want to play.

On top of that, you can see what the most recent winning numbers were, what other numbers have won and even buy tickets so you can participate in any of the games you see. That’s going to give you everything you need in one.

If you’re interested in playing the lottery one of the most important things is to know where you can find more information. You want to get as much info as you can before you buy a ticket because that way you can be sure you’re getting a ticket for the right game. No more missing out on a chance at several million (or more).
