The Powerball Jackpot is already quite big, after the record $1.6 Billion Jackpot last month.

The Powerball Jackpot for the Saturday drawing is at $266 million as no player had the right numbers in the Wednesday drawing. The new jackpot is not close yet to the world record breaking $1.6 billion jackpot in January. Three players have split that incredible jackpot.

If there is no winner tomorrow, the Powerball Jackpot is already going on another run to reach a Billion within a couple drawings. The Powerball odds are 1 in 292,201,338.00 for the grand prize. To win $4 the odds are 1 in 38.32.

Powerball costs $2 for a single play for one drawing. To add the Power Play multiplier, it costs an additional $1 for each play. The next drawing will be on Saturday, Feb. 27. The Powerball lottery is available in 44 states, District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.
