(KGTV) — If there's any time to press your luck, perhaps it's this weekend. Plus, it will only cost you a couple of bucks to do so.
Saturday's Powerball jackpot hit $495 million, after several weeks without a jackpot winner. This, despite nearly 1.5 million people playing for Wednesday's draw.
Saturday's winnings would be the eighth largest in the game's history. The cash option will net the winner $300.2 million if they chose that route.
Players have until 7 p.m. to purchase tickets, with retails for $2 a draw.
If no one wins Saturday, the jackpot is set to rise to $550 million.
Of course, winning the Powerball is an uphill battle of luck. Players have a 1 in 292.2 million chance of winning.
