The largest lottery jackpot in the world is up for grabs in the latest Powerball drawing. Tonight’s the night millions of lottery players hope six little balls will change their lives forever. By this time tomorrow we’ll know if Powerball has a winner… The jackpot has climbed to an estimated $1.5 billion, easily surpassing all other lotteries. The jackpot for the twice-weekly game started at $40 million on November 4th. There have been plenty of Powerball lines at the Alabama-Georgia border because of the Powerball Lottery jackpot and some people are even saying what they would do if they won. The prize pot has grown so large partly because of a new format. To win you’ve got to match all five numbers picked, plus the Powerball number. No one has matched all six Powerball numbers since then, so the prize kept growing. Lottery officials expect at least 80- percent of the more than 292 million number combinations will be purchased before the drawing. If there are no winners for tonight’s drawing, the jackpot for Saturday’s drawing will be an estimated $2-billion with a cash value of $1-point-24 billion.
