The jackpot has been building since it was restarted at $20M on September 17.
If someone wins tonight, the cash value is 146.2-million dollars.
The odds of walking away with all that cash are roughly one in 195 million.
Powerball is played in Arkansas and 41 other states, plus Washington D.C. and the US Virgin Islands.
KARK 4 is the only Little Rock television station that airs lottery drawings live.
Tune in tonight at 10 o'clock for the Powerball draw.
- One Powerball ticket for one night's draw costs $1.
- If you add the Power Play, it costs another $1. Power Play is a multiplier of 2x, 3x, 4x or 5x that applies to prizes--so a $7 winner when the Power Play comes up at 5x wins $35. Power Play also moves a $200,000 winner to $1 Million, regardless of the multiplier number.
- To play Powerball, just pick five white ball numbers between 1 and 59 and one red Powerball number between 1 and 39--or let the store's computer pick for you.
- There are fewer than 20 Powerball jackpot winners each year. Those who win have a choice between taking the cash value of the jackpot (usually about half the full jackpot amount) or taking an annual payout of 30 payments, adding up to the full jackpot amount.
- Yes, the jackpot payments continue to your heirs if you meet an untimely end before you collect all your money.
- Even when no one in America hits the jackpot, Powerball prizes of $10,000 to $1 Million occur regularly for Arkansas players.
