The next Powerball drawing is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 5 at 10:59 p.m. The jackpot is estimated at $1.5 billion with a cash option of $745.9 million, according to Powerball officials.

"If a player wins Saturday’s jackpot, it will be the second-largest jackpot in Powerball history and third-largest jackpot in U.S. lottery history, only behind the world record $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot and the $1.537 billion Mega Millions jackpot," Powerball stated in a press release.

The last Powerball jackpot was won on August 3 in Pennsylvania. Saturday’s drawing will be the 40th Powerball drawing since the last jackpot winner. If no one wins the jackpot in Saturday’s drawing, it will tie the game record for the number of consecutive drawings without a grand prize winner, according to lottery officials.
