Powerball is played in 31 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Mega Millions is in 12 states. The consortium behind Mega Millions and the Urbandale, Iowa-based Multi-State Lottery Association, which runs Powerball, agreed in principle to cross-sell tickets for both games.
Association executive director Chuck Strutt noted Tuesday that many details remain, including how to sell the games and financial and security processes.
He says cross-selling could begin in early 2010, and the organizations could begin a national lottery by next fall.
