TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Saturday night's Powerball drawing offers a huge payoff for those picking the correct numbers.

An estimated $304 million is on the line for the drawing.

Players must select 5 numbers from 1-69 and one Powerball number between 1-26 to play. Anyone who correctly selects all six numbers wins the jackpot. Those picking the 5 correct white balls will win $1 million, or more if a Power Play is purchased.

The Powerball jackpot has rolled over 16 times since the last winner on December 26, 2018.

Tickets must be purchased before 10 p.m. Saturday to be eligible for that night's drawing.
