Powerball drawings are held at 10:59 p.m. ET on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. The jackpot could increase before the next drawing.

Winners may choose to receive their prize as an annuity paid in 30 graduated payments over 29 years, or they may take a cash payout, which is estimated at $745.9 million for the next game. Nearly all winners choose cash.

The estimated $1.5 billion jackpot is the third-largest lottery prize in U.S. history and the second-largest in the history of the Powerball game.

The jackpot has gone unclaimed since Aug. 3. The longer it goes without a winner, the closer it comes to 2016's record Powerball jackpot of $1.586 billion.

The odds of winning are quite low, about 1 in 292.2 million. The odds of winning any prize are better, 1 in 24.9.

A Powerball ticket costs $2. For an additional $1 per ticket, players can multiply non-jackpot prizes by up to 10 times with the Power Play feature. One caveat: The 10X multiplier is only available when the advertised jackpot annuity is $150 million or less.

To win the jackpot, a player must match all the white balls in any order and the red Powerball number. Players can choose their own numbers or let the ticket vending machine pick the numbers for them. Lottery officials say about 75 percent of winning tickets over the years were picked by the computer, not by the player.

Tickets are sold in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. According to Powerball, more than half of all ticket sales remain in the jurisdiction where the ticket was sold.
