The Powerball jackpot has climbed to $415 million, making it the largest since a record-setting prize in January.

Winning numbers for the game will be drawn Saturday night, and if no one has the lucky ticket, the prize will likely grow substantially by the next drawing Wednesday.

Although $415 million is nothing to turn your nose up at, it's far smaller than the largest-ever $1.6 billion jackpot that prompted some to wait in hours-long lines outside lottery retailers. Three people bought winning tickets for that prize in January.

Powerball is played in 44 states plus Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The odds of winning are one in 292.2 million
