Powerball Worth $650 Million on Wednesday

Powerball Mania is sweeping the nation again after nobody had the right combination of numbers of Saturday night.
That means the jackpot is now estimated at $650 million, with a cash payout of $411.7 million. The next drawing is on Wednesday, Aug. 23.
Before you get your hopes up too high, your odds of winning are about one in 229 million. Odds are, you’re more likely to be killed by an asteroid (1 in 700,000), hit by lightning while drowning (1 in 183 million) or give birth to quadruplets (1 in 729,000).
Powerball is played in 44 states including Tennessee and Kentucky, as well as Washington D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
