  • $625 Million Powerball Jackpot Up for Grabs

It's the seventh largest in US history.

Unclaimed Powerball tickets may be entered into the New York Lottery Player's Club within 60 days of purchase for a second chance to win cash, points or prizes. The Powerball jackpot went unclaimed.

If a MI player wins Saturday's $625 million jackpot, it would be the largest Powerball jackpot ever won in the state. Five balls are drawn from a set of balls numbered 1 through 70; the Mega ball is drawn from a set of balls numbered 1 through 25.

The current Powerball jackpot has rolled 24 times to reach its highest level in seven months since October's run reached $687.8 million. But if you only match one number and it happens to be the red Powerball, you'll walk away with $4.

According to the game's official website, the odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 302,575,350. You have two ways to win $100: either match four out of five of the white balls OR match three white balls and the Powerball. There are smaller prizes for tickets with fewer of the winning numbers.

Taking the cash up front in the next drawing would get you about $465 million (before taxes), while an annuity would get you the full amount (also, before taxes) in installments across 30 years. The drawing scheduled for Saturday, March 23 could produce the first victor of 2019.
