If you haven't gotten your ticket for Saturday night's Powerball drawing...you might want to reconsider.

The jackpot amount will be an estimated $700 million, which is the largest lottery prize in the U.S. history, according to Mashable.

The previous record was $656 million for the Mega Millions lottery prize back in 2012.

So how can you win?

You can go get a ticket for $2 in 44 states, D.C., Puerto Rico and in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Alaska, Hawaii, Nevada, Utah, Alabama and Mississippi are not included. So, if you are in any of those locations you better fly or drive some where!

Saturday's drawing will happen at 10:59 p.m. EST, 7:59 p.m. Hopefully, one of our readers will pick five numbers out of 69!
