Powerball jackpot grows to $435M

Saturday's estimated $447.8 million jackpot, the seventh largest in Powerball history, beat out the $435.3 million won by a ticket buyer in IN in a 22 February drawing, after a late surge in ticket buying.

Powerball numbers are drawn every Wednesday and Saturday night at 10:59 p.m.

The winning ticket of the 10th largest lottery in USA history was sold in Sun City, California, according to the Powerball website.

There hasn't been a Powerball jackpot victor since April 1.

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

The massive jackpot is the seventh in the list of the largest awarded USA lottery prizes of all time - a list that includes Mega Millions and Powerball winnings, the U.S.'s two largest games.

One lucky person is about to be a few hundred million dollars richer.

A $2 ticket gives you a one in 292.2 million chance at joining the hall of Powerball champions. The cash prize would be $279.1 million. Before the switch, the Powerball odds were 1 in 175 million. That money was split between winners in California, Florida and Tennessee. It is unclear if there are winning tickets in other states.
