Saturday night’s Powerball jackpot was going to be a big one.
At an estimated $380 million, the drawing was worth the most amount of money in nearly a year and was the sixth largest in the game’s history, California lottery officials said.
But by late Friday morning, the number had increased again by $20 million to $380 million, according to a California Lottery news release.
If anyone wins Saturday’s massive jackpot, the lucky person would have the option to take an estimated one-time payment of $256.8, the release stated.
The latest Powerball jackpot is worth the most since the drawing on Feb. 19, 2014, when a Northern California man matched all six numbers to claim the massive $425.3 million prize.
Powerball is played in California and 43 other states, along with Washington D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Tickets can be purchased for $2 apiece from any of the 21,000 participating California Lottery or Lottery Lucky retailers in the state, according to the state lottery release.
The drawing was set to take place at 7:59 p.m. PT.
