At a towering $435 million, the Powerball jackpot is exciting casual and hardcore players across the country.

The lucky numbers drawn Saturday night were 20-26-32-38-58, and the Powerball number was 3.

The winning ticket of the 10th largest lottery in USA history was sold in Sun City, California, according to the Powerball website. You have until 9:45 p.m. tonight to get one. The jackpot had grown because no one had matched all the numbers since April 1.

One of those, the January 13, 2016 drawing, turned into the largest in lottery history. A jackpot closing in on half a billion dollars will do that.

The odds of winning Saturday's grand prize are roughly 1 in 292 million.

This evening's drawing will be the 20th held since an anonymous victor in Arizona captured a $60 million prize on April 1.

With fewer winners, the jackpot has the chance to grow bigger week after week.

Powerball is held in 44 states, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.

The estimated prize would be a $273.1 million cash payout before taxes are deducted. It is unclear if there are winning tickets in other states.
