PORTLAND, Ore.- As the jackpots for two of the most popular lotteries in the country continue to grow, it may be time to try your luck.
The drawing for the Mega Millions jackpot, which is worth an estimated $355 million, is on Friday, 31 March 2023. The $147 million Powerball jackpot drawing is set for Saturday, 1 April 2023.
But where you play may change your chances of winning the jackpot.
The TNT Hollywood Tavern in Salem has won the lottery more than once, and both the owner and the people who work there say that the luck of the place comes from the people who go there.
A man who had been going to that bar for 20 years changed his life there. In the last Powerball, that person hit every number except the Powerball.

Katie Anderson, a bartender at the tavern, sold him the winning ticket.
“It was just a very real moment you can’t explain because it’s just something that will probably never happen again in my lifetime. Just being able to sell a million-dollar ticket is incredible,” said Anderson.
The Oregon Lottery has information about which places in the state sold the most winning lottery tickets worth $1,000 or more in 2022.
The Oregon Lottery officials say that these are stores or other places that get a lot of foot traffic in areas with a lot of people.
