The already huge Powerball jackpot continues on developing and now has hit an estimated $800 million

its second-biggest ever and fifth-greatest in U.S. lottery history.

No triumphing tickets have been bought for Wednesday night's Powerball jackpot of about $700 million,

the game's largest this year. So for Saturday night's drawing,

the grand prize will be at least about $800 million, Powerball officials say.

The range should develop as extra and extra tickets are wolfed up.

Wednesday was once the thirty-sixth straight time no one gained the Powerball pot of gold.

Powerball's largest jackpot was once also the greatest ever received in any lottery somewhere in the world,

an enormous $1.586 billion in January 2016. It was once shared via ticketholders in California, Florida, and Tennessee.

Powerball jackpot winners have the choice of getting their prize in an immediate lump sum,

which would quantity to an estimated $383.7 million in money price if anyone wins Saturday,

or as an annuity. That alternative can pay out the full jackpot quantity over roughly 30 years.
