Saturday’s Powerball Jackpot Passes Half-Billion Dollar Mark
Saturday night's estimated $550 million Powerball jackpot will now be the eighth largest total in U.S. lotto history. Sales close for Saturday's drawing in Minnesota at 9 PM Saturday night, with the cost of a single ticket at $2.
Saturday's $550 million total is the largest since there was a $758.7 million Powerball winner last August.
If you win and choose to take the cash lump sum, you'll have to find a way to survive on $348 million.
The odds of winning tonight are 1 in 292.2 million. (So you're sayin' there's a chance.)
