Here are five things everyone should know about Saturday's estimated $1.50 billion dollar Powerball jackpot.
1. The jackpot is the third-largest in U.S. history and the second largest for Powerball. Three winners in California, Tennessee and Florida split the largest ever jackpot on Jan. 13, 2016—a $1.586 billion Powerball prize. The second-largest jackpot was a $1.537 billion Mega Millions drawing won by a single ticket in South Carolina on Oct. 23, 2018.

The longest jackpot run in Powerball history ended on Oct. 4, 2021, when a ticket in California won a $699.8 million jackpot on the 41st drawing. No one has won the top Powerball prize since Aug. 3.
