Powerball jackpot at $535000000 for Saturday drawing

If you went to sleep wondering if you were a multimillionaire, the answer is no, you didn't win Saturday night's $541.9 million Powerball jackpot.

With no victor of Saturday night's $535 million Powerball jackpot, the prize has skyrocketed to $650 million for the next drawing on Wednesday.

Chances of picking all six winning numbers stand at about one in 292 million.

Saturday night's drawing will be the 20th drawing since the jackpot was last hit on June 10 in California. The drawing for Saturday, August 19, 2017, was for $535 million.

If Powerball doesn't find a victor on Saturday, the jackpot will continue to rise - and could jump by hundreds of millions of dollars at this point.

The current estimated jackpot is now $650 million, according to Powerball's website.

How much bigger do you think the Powerball will get this time before there's a victor?

The largest ever was the $1.6 billion grand prize snagged by three winning tickets on January 13, 2016.

Powerball is played in 44 states, including Rhode Island and MA.

The numbers have been drawn for one of the nation's biggest lottery jackpots. Deadline to purchase tickets is 9:45 p.m. Two players matched five of five white-ball numbers with the power-play option, winning $2 million each.
