If you like big numbers, the Powerball lottery jackpot number will bring a smile to your face.

The jackpot for Saturday's drawing has grown to $320 million, or a nealry $200 million cash value.

Tickets will be available until 9:59 p.m. Saturday.

In Powerball, players buy $2 tickets, then pick five white balls between one and 59, plus a single red ball--the Powerball-- from a second set of numbers between one and 35.

Players can pick their own numbers or let the computer pick them.

To win the jackpot, players must match all five numbers drawn plus the Powerball.

There are also eight additional ways to win a cash prize.
