The current Powerball jackpot is the sixth largest in the game's history and the largest winning pot in over a year.

If claimed as a lump sum, Saturday's jackpot would be worth roughly $256.8 million.

The last Powerball winner was an anonymous Washington state resident, who took home $90 million on Nov. 29.
