The jackpot prize will be shared among winners in all POWERBALL states.

Because there was no "perfect ticket" drawn on Wednesday, the jackpot for Saturday's drawing has grown to a $435 million.

The player in North Carolina also played the Power Play option which increased their winnings to $2 million.

Hitting the $400 million-plus mark is a milestone, making it the seventh largest lottery jackpot in the Powerball game's history, officials said. Virginia lottery tickets expire 180 days after the drawing.

That's 17 drawings without a jackpot victor, which upped the estimated grand prize for Wednesday's drawing.

The next POWERBALL drawing will be held Saturday, June 10, 2017, at 10:59 p.m. ET, tickets must be purchased by 10:00 p.m. ET to be eligible for this drawing.

The next victor of the Kentucky Lottery's Powerball jackpot could be from Maysville. Additionally, all winning Powerball tickets must be turned in and redeemed in the state where the member lottery is associated.

If one ticket matches all six numbers in Saturday's drawing, the victor will have the choice of taking the full $435 million jackpot in 30 annual payments or a one-time cash option of approximately $273.1 million before taxes.

There are five white balls that range between the numbers 1 and 69 and one red Powerball between the numbers 1 and 26.

All eyes are on the USA this Saturday after Powerball rolled over to US$475 million.** Many tens of thousands of Jamaicans are going online to play Powerball online through theLotter, so the chance that a Jamaican will win the huge prize is increasing daily.

Still, it doesn't rival the record Powerball jackpocket that was worth almost $1.6 billion in January 2016 and split among three winners. Many Quick Pick tickets have won Powerball prizes, including the Powerball jackpot over the years.

According to the Powerball website players have a 1-in-39 chance of winning $4 for having either the Powerball or the Powerball plus one number.
