Saturday's prize, which requires an exact match of five numbers from 1 to 69 and a Powerball number from 1 to 26, has about a $273 million cash value if its victor chooses to take all the money now rather than in 30 annual installments. The odds of winning $1 million - awarded for having all five numbers, without the Powerball - are 1 in 11,688,054.

The next drawing will be held on Saturday at 10:59 p.m. Had the numbers matched, the victor would have won an estimated $375 million.

Powerball is played in 44 states, Washington, D.C., the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. And the largest single-winner pot was to a winning ticket in Florida, good for $590.5 million on May 18, 2013.
