Saturday night's Powerball jackpot is the sixth largest in the game's history.


More than three-quarters of a billion dollars – $760 million – is up for grabs on Saturday after there was no winner in Wednesday's Powerball drawing.

It's been over two months and no one has won the grand prize. And the final main prize is still not awarded.

The last time the jackpot was won was on October 11, when a mystery winner from California scooped a staggering $1.76 billion – a cash value of $774.1 million. According to the California Lottery, the ticket was sold at Midway Market & Liquor in Frazier Park, about 70 miles north of Los Angeles.

However, so far no one has come forward to claim their prize and they have a year from October 11th to do so. If no one comes forward, the money will go to California public schools, said Carolyn Becker, spokeswoman for the state lottery.

Saturday night's jackpot has a lump sum prize estimated at $383.6 million. According to Powerball, it is the sixth largest in the game's history.

Powerball costs $2 per game. Winning the jackpot means that a ticket has correctly selected all five white balls and the red “Powerball”.

Drawings take place on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10:59 p.m. ET in Tallahassee, Florida. Ticket sales cutoff times vary, but are typically set one to two hours before drawing time, according to Powerball.

The drawings will be broadcast and can be streamed live on the Powerball website.
