If you could use an extra $500 million or so, here's the opportunity you have been waiting for.  Nobody matched all the winning numbers in Wednesday’s Powerball drawing and that means the jackpot for Saturday climbs to almost $500 million.

The estimated jackpot for Saturday’s drawing is $495 million, according to the Powerball website. The cash option of the jackpot will be just over $300 million.

The odds right now of winning are 1 in 292.2 million, however if you win, this could be the eight largest jackpot in the history of the game.

There was one New Jersey Lottery ticket sold that matched four of the five white balls and the Powerball drawn for the Wednesday, March 13th drawing winning the $50,000 third-tier prize.
