  • Any superstitious people buying Powerball tickets during the solar eclipse? Jackpot now $650 million

Powerball tickets are $2 per play.

The drawing will be Wednesday at 10:59 p.m.

If you're a Powerball player, you won't want to miss Wednesday evening's drawing, where $700 million - one of the largest amounts in the game's history - is up for grabs following 21 consecutive drawings which failed to produce a victor. A 10X multiplier will be available for the Match 4+1 prize and lower prize tiers when the jackpot is at or below $150 million, or when announced.

The last time there was a Powerball jackpot victor was June 10 with a single ticket worth $447.8 million that was sold in California. Powerball holds the distinction of the largest lotto jackpot when its highest prize reached $1.586 billion in January 2016. If the lump sum option is chosen, the payout would be $443.3 million.

The Powerball jackpot is now $700 million - the second-largest prize in the game's history.
