MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Florida lottery players are hoping to win big this weekend after no ticket matched all six numbers in Wednesday’s Powerball lottery drawing, pushing the weekend jackpot to an estimated $640 million.
The winner of the multi-state Powerball jackpot can choose to get their jackpot in 30 annual installments or take a lump-sum payment of $478.7 million before taxes.
The $640 million drawing on Saturday will be Powerball’s fifth-largest in its history, and its highest amount in nearly two years.
