Tonight’s Powerball jackpot will be worth over $600-milliom dollars – 610-million, to be exact. Nobody won the big jackpot in Saturday night's drawing for about 500-million, though three people did win at least a million dollars. Those lucky folks are in New York, South Carolina and Texas.
According to a statement from Powerball, the overall odds of winning a prize are 1 in 24.9 and the odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million. And if you do win? 610-million gets drilled down to a paltry $292.6-million after taxes.
This is the eighth largest grand prize in Powerball history.
