But be warned: The odds of winning are 1 in roughly 292,000,000.

At $625 million, the current Powerball jackpot is the fourth-largest Powerball prize in history.

You have until 10 p.m. Saturday to purchase a Powerball ticket for $2 and possibly win the jackpot.


It has a cash value of $380.6 million. The cash option is about $30.2 million.

A jackpot victor needs to match numbers on all five white balls and the red Powerball.

Powerball is held in 44 states, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.


The buyers of three tickets shared the country's largest jackpot. About $91.3 million of that would go to federal taxes.

Choose five numbers between 1 an 69, and one Powerball number between 1 and 26. But if you only match one number and it happens to be the red Powerball, you'll walk away with $4.

On May 18, Little Ferry resident Tayeb Souami won the $315.3 million prize with a ticket he bought at ShopRite in Hackensack.
