MIAMI (CBSMiami) – What could you do with $200 million? If you’re lucky, that’s how much the Powerball lottery jackpot will be for Saturday’s drawing.

According to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, the jackpot will be roughly $205 million. The largest Powerball jackpot this year hit $336 million in February.

Powerball is played across 42 states and this year, ticket prices increased from $1 to $2. The increase was to make jackpots grow quickly, according to the Sun-Sentinel.

The biggest jackpot in history was hit this year when three players split the Mega Millions jackpot of $656 million.
