The nationwide drawing will be televised live at 10:59 p.m.
The lottery program in Washington state released a list of almost 50 stores previous year that have sold tickets with "big wins". They are 292.2 million-to-1, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association. "One number doesn't win the jackpot, a set of numbers does", says Lustig.
Of course, there's also a chance there will be no victor tonight, just as there haven't in the 20 Powerball drawings since the last victor on June 10.
Earlier this month both Powerball and Mega Millions jackpots were above $300 million.
Richard Lustig claims to be a seven-time lottery grand prize victor and author of "Learn How To Increase Your Chances of Winning The Lottery".

To play, pick five numbers ranging from 1 and 69 along with the Powerball, which ranges from 1 and 26. And Power Play allows a victor to potentially double, triple, quadruple, or even quintuple the lower-tier prize amounts for just an additional dollar. But more numbers also means longer odds. The jackpot has climbed since there were no winners for Saturday's $650 million drawing. All publications noted that it was perfectly legal for foreigners to win American lottery prizes by purchasing official tickets online at theLotter.
Powerball is played in 47 jurisdictions (44 states, Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, and Virgin Islands), and is not played in Alabama, Alaska, Hawaii, Mississippi, Nevada, or Utah.
People can buy tickets until 9:59 p.m. today. Players in Colorado have a 1-in-38 chance to win the smallest amount, which is $4 - double the cost of a standard ticket, Tabor said. "I've paid them from stores that sold 10 tickets in a day. and millions in a year, so it's completely random".
