Lottery players will have a shot at the fourth-largest jackpot in U.S. history as numbers are drawn for the estimated $750 million Powerball game.
Those planning to spend $2 on a Powerball ticket can hope for a giant payday but should realize they have almost no chance of winning the top prize. That’s because the odds of winning the jackpot are one in 292.2 million.
No one has won the Powerball jackpot since Aug. 11.
The $750 million prize refers to the annuity option, paid annually over 29 years. A winner who opted for cash would get $428.6 million.
