Is today your lucky day?

There was no winner for Monday’s Powerball jackpot, making tonight’s drawing worth a whopping $353 million.

The winner of the tonight’s drawing could be the first Powerball jackpot champion since January, when a married couple from Wisconsin pocketed $316.3 million.

Disappointed lottery players on Wednesday night will have a chance to redeem themselves in Friday’s Mega Millions jackpot drawing, which now surged to an eye-popping $410 million.

After confirming there was no jackpot winner in Tuesday night’s drawing, Mega Millions announced the prize had exceeded $400 million for the third time this year.

The Mega Millions jackpot last made headlines in July, when a ticket sold in Illinois won an astonishing $1.34 billion — the third-largest prize in US history.

The anonymous winner took their time claiming the prize, only choosing the lump sum payment of $780.5 million after consulting with legal and financial advisors for eight weeks.

“It’s a surreal feeling giving away this amount of money and knowing what a huge impact this is going to make on the winners’ lives, and for others close to them as well,” Illinois Lottery Claims Manager Luis Rodriguez said at the time.
