The next Powerball drawing is on Wednesday. The second-largest jackpot was a $1.586 billion Powerball drawing on January 13, 2016.

Because no Mega Millions winners emerged, the next scheduled drawing on Tuesday was projected to be worth a record $1.6 billion.

On Tuesday, that would mean a total of almost $905 million - before taxes, according to the Mega Millions website. United Kingdom players can win a separate prize by betting on the numbers.

"We tell them how to play it", she said.

There was no victor in Saturday night's Powerball $430 million drawing, just as there was no victor in Friday night's Mega Millions drawing.

Russ Lopez, spokesman for the California Lottery, said tickets were going "very, very quickly" Saturday. That jackpot was won in January 2016.

Each Powerball ticket is $2. You can pick your own numbers or the computer will do it for you.

In that time 26 people have won $1 million for matching every number but the Powerball.

The prize pot has reached new heights after no player got all of the numbers of 15, 23, 53, 65, 70 and the Mega Ball 7 during Friday night's draw. Again, the computer can do this for you if you don't want to choose your own numbers.

Mega Millions officials say no tickets matched all six numbers to claim the estimated $1 billion grand prize in Friday night's drawing.

It costs $2 to play the game, but the odds of winning the grand prize is one in 302.5 million.
