Saturday’s jackpot is the latest in a grand prize streak that entices players to shell out $2 and try to beat formidable odds.

WASHINGTON – The $700 million Powerball jackpot has once again sent America into a lottery frenzy.

The jackpot increased after Wednesday’s draw failed to find a major winner. Saturday’s jackpot ranks as the 10th largest in US lottery history.

It comes after a $1.35 billion Mega Millions prize won by a person in Maine less than three weeks ago and a record $2.04 billion Powerball jackpot won by a California player on November last year.

The last time someone won the Powerball jackpot was November 19, 2022.

Winners must choose between an annuity, payable over 29 years, or a cash option. Most jackpot winners prefer a one-time cash payout, which for Saturday’s draw would be worth an estimated $375.7 million.

What are my chances of winning Powerball?

The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million.

Over the past few years, huge lottery jackpots have become more popular as lottery officials have changed the rules and ticket prices to increase the top prize.

Powerball’s biggest change comes in 2021 when officials decide to add Mondays to the weekly draw list on Wednesday and Saturday nights. At the time of publication, Powerball claimed the addition of a Monday draw would result in a “bigger, faster-rising jackpot”.

Powerball is played in 45 states, as well as Washington, DC, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
