Powerball jackpot now $460M for nation's 10th largest prize

Posted: Updated:

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - The estimated Powerball jackpot has climbed to $460 million, making it the nation's 10th largest lottery prize.
    
Players have until Wednesday night to spend $2 for a chance at the prize, awarded to anyone matching five white balls drawn from one drum and a red Powerball drawn from another. The odds of winning are one in 292.2 million.
    
It's the biggest Powerball jackpot since a $758.7 million prize won last August.
    
The $460 million prize refers to the annuity option, paid over 29 years. The cash prize would be $291 million.
    
Lottery players also can vie for another giant prize, as the Mega Millions game's grand prize will be $418 million in Friday's drawing.
    
The odds of one person winning jackpots in both games? One in more than 88 quadrillion.
