The Powerball jackpot has reached another new level never before seen. According to the Kansas Lottery, as of Saturday morning the jackpot climbed to $900 million. This is the largest jackpot in Powerball history, and also the largest jackpot of any lottery game in U.S. history.

Lottery officials say a winner would have the option of being paid $900 million through annual payments over 29 years or opting for a $558 million lump-sum cash payout.

Sales for the lottery game have skyrocketed since Wednesday, when no one won an estimated $500 million jackpot.

Officials say that if no one wins on Saturday, the next jackpot will be $1.3 billion.

Powerball is played in 44 states, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. In Kansas, Powerball tickets are sold everywhere Kansas Lottery tickets are sold.
