It could be a very happy New Year - if you are lucky.

LOS ANGELES -- There were no winners in the early week drawings for Mega Millions and Powerball, bringing the combined jackpots up to $690 million.

The winning Powerball numbers from Wednesday were 3, 9, 16, 56, 60 and Powerball 3. The top prize vaults to $384 million for Saturday's drawing.

Not to be outdone, Mega Millions will also hold a drawing on Friday for its $306 million top prize.
