Nearly $1 billion Powerball jackpot on the line for tonight's draw

 — 

Any potential winner of tonight’s nearly $1 billion Powerball jackpot would be very, very rich.

Saturday night’s drawing produced white balls 19, 30, 37, 44 and 46 with red Powerball 22.

After Wednesday’s drawing became the 30th consecutive drawing without a grand prize winner, the Powerball jackpot grew to $960 million, according to Powerball. That’s a cash value of $441.4 million.

Depending on which state you live in, a one-time net payout would amount to approximately $278 million, on average, after taxes, according to USA Mega. With the growing annuity option, after taxes, you’d make about $20 million a year for 29 years, depending on the state.

But your odds of winning the grand prize are 1 in about 292.2 million, according to the lottery.

This is the Powerball’s second-largest jackpot this year and fourth-largest jackpot in its history.

The drawing will be held at 10:59 p.m. ET Saturday from the Florida Lottery draw studio in Tallahassee. Drawings are also streamed online.
