The Powerball jackpot has topped $620 million, making it the tenth highest in history.
Ahead of Saturday night’s drawing, the Powerball jackpot has climbed to an estimated $620 million, making it the tenth largest in US lottery history.
Because no one matched all six numbers on Wednesday night, the jackpot grew.
According to CNBC, if someone matches all of the numbers on Saturday, they will win the tenth highest reward ever. However, the jackpot is still $980 million short of the record-breaking $1.6 billion jackpot won in January 2016.
According to the Powerball website, the cash value of Saturday night’s estimated jackpot is $446 million, which most winners prefer over a 30-year annuity plan, according to CNBC.
On June 5, a single winning ticket worth roughly $286 million struck the Powerball jackpot in Florida. There have been 38 drawings since then with no top prize winner.
