Powerball jackpot drawn tonight worth $380 million

What would you do with $380 million? If you play Powerball, that's the jackpot you could win tonight.

The odds of winning are one in 175,000,000. But, that won't stop people from driving over to Louisiana today and purchasing a ticket. It's the largest Powerball jackpot in almost a year.

By the way, if you win, and you choose the one-time lump sum payment, you'll receive almost $257 million, before Uncle Sam gets his share.

How do you win? You need a lot of luck. Powerball mixes up 59 white balls in a drum. Five of those balls are randomly drawn. Your ticket must match the five numbers on those balls. And then, you must have a sixth number that matches the red Powerball drawn tonight. There are 35 red balls mixed in a separate drum.
