After no winners from last week's drawings, the Mega Millions is up to $139 million, and the Powerball hit $222 million.

The Tuesday night Mega Millions drawing offers two payment options: a hefty $104 million lump sum or $5.3 million a year for 26 years, according to a release.

The Powerball drawing, Wednesday, has the same two payment options but with bigger payouts. How does getting $222 million spread out over 29 years sound? Or maybe a lump sum of about $144 million sounds better?

The odds of winning either jackpot prize are about 1 in 175 million.
