The next Powerball drawing is tonight and winning tickets are worth over half a billion dollars.

The jackpot is at $546 million for the drawing Wednesday night after no tickets matched Monday’s numbers.

To win, tickets must match all five numbers, plus the Powerball.

Powerball is offered in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and if people in multiple areas win the jackpot, they split the pot.

The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are 1 in 292 million.

News 6 will air the drawing live at 11 p.m.
