The jackpot for Friday night’s Mega Millions drawing is now at $290 million, with a cash option of $172.1 million. The Saturday night Powerball jackpot has risen to $385 million, with a cash option of $229.4 million.

One Chicopee resident told 22News what he would do if he won the Powerball.

“If I won the Powerball I would set my family up for life, set my future retirement up for life, retire on a deserted island and be surrounded by salt water,” Steve Swanson told 22News.

The Powerball jackpot hasn’t been hit since early January, when a New Hampshire woman won a $559.7 million prize.

Tickets for these drawings can be purchased at Massachusetts Lottery retailers throughout the state.
