Powerball jackpot reaches $800M for Saturday's drawing

With a little luck, you could win an historic Powerball jackpot this Saturday worth an estimated $800 million.

The jackpot has been growing for two months now, all the way to a staggering near quarter of a billion dollars.

To win the jackpot you have to match five white balls in any order plus the red ball.

If you’re a winner, you can choose to be paid out over 29 years or receive a cash payout option, which would mean taking home over $400 million in cash.

The odds of winning are over 1 in 292 million.

That means you have a better chance of being struck by lightning while drowning.

The next drawing is Saturday night at 11 p.m. EST.

You’ve got until 9:58 p.m. EST Saturday night to purchase your tickets.
