Powerball Jackpot Climbs Ahead Of Saturday's Drawing

After no one matched all six numbers in Wednesday night's Powerball drawing, the jackpot has grown to one of the largest in U.S. history.

Saturday's drawing will reach an esitmated $510 million. With a number like that, the drawing would be the eighth largest lottery jackpot.

The prize figure refers to the annuity option, with winning being paid out over 29 years. A winner who took the cash option would snag $324.2 million, though that would be subject to state and federal taxes.

Powerball is played in 44 states as well as Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
