The Powerball jackpot has reached an estimated $1.3 billion for the upcoming Saturday draw, making it the fourth largest in the game’s history and the eighth largest in U.S. lottery history.

This comes after no participants matched all six numbers in the recent $1.13 billion draw. The staggering jackpot highlights the challenging odds of winning, set at 1 in 292.2 million.

This surge in the jackpot follows a series of resets, with the last major win recorded in Grand Blanc, Michigan, where a lucky player secured $842.2 million at the start of the year.

Powerball jackpots have historically reached the billion-dollar mark on four occasions, underscoring the game’s massive appeal and the allure of life-changing prizes.
