Two major jackpots rose last night, but the attention-grabber is Powerball, with $222 million on the line tonight.

That's its biggest jackpot in more than a year, the second biggest in two years.

The only grander grand prize was $276 million won by eight West Virginia tax-office coworkers in March last year.

In other Powerball news, $400,000 could vanish tomorrow. On May 28, 2008, someone purchased a ticket a ticket in Cumberland County, Pa., that had the Power Play option plus all the white-ball numbers (10, 18, 22, 37 and 45). The ticket was purchased at Karns Foods, 4870 Carlisle Pike in Mechanicsburg.

Powerball is played in 30 states, including Pennsylvania and Delaware.

Here's a rundown on other big jackpots.

Pick Six. Talk about seeing double - or in this case, double triple double. Not only does Powerball's top prize have three 2's, so does New Jersey's Pick Six. Tomorrow night's annuity prize is $22.2 million, the biggest in several years.

Mega Millions. Because no one hit all the numbers drawn last night, Friday's jackpot will be $35 million in New Jersey and 11 other states.

The numbers were 9, 18, 21, 37 and 55 with a Mega Ball of 33.

Two Ohio tickets won $250,000 each for having all but the Mega Ball.

Super 7. This jackpot keeps growing for this newly resurrected Pennsylvania game. No one hit seven of last night's 11 numbers - 4, 16, 22, 27, 35, 59, 62, 69, 71, 73 and 77 - so Friday's jackpot will be $8.26 million.

All of these jackpot figures are for totals paid over many years - 25 in Jersey, 29 in Pennsylvania. Cash payouts range from about 50 percent to 60 percent of the annunity amounts.
