According to CNN Money, the Powerball prize on Saturday night is slated to be the 10th largest Powerball in USA history. Since June 10, the last time someone claimed the grand prize, it has gone from the minimum $40 million jackpot to the current $510 million jackpot.

Powerball is played in 44 states in the U.S., plus D.C., the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico. The next drawing is Wednesday night.

Four other big-prize winners came from tickets sold in North Carolina, winning a base prize of $50,000. The prize has now gone up to an estimated $650-million. Three of these had the $1 Powerball that multiplied the prize by 4, which quadrupled the prize to $200,000. Tickets must be purchased by 7:30 p.m. the day of the drawing.
