If you plan on stopping by the convenience store on the way home Wednesday afternoon in Dallas, Texas be prepared to wait a bit longer to check out. Why? Powerball Lottery fever is taking over Texas.

The last Powerball Lottery drawing was already mind-numbing, but when no one matched all five numbers and the Powerball number, the $1 billion jackpot grew to $1.09 billion for Wednesday's (April 3rd) drawing.

With a jackpot that high thousands of people who wouldn't normally play the lottery will find themselves pulling into a convenience store on the way home throwing down some cash for a few quick pick lines in hopes of giving Elon Musk a run at the title of 'World's Richest Man'! OK, maybe Elon will have a few billion more, but you'd be in nice company.

Jackpot Options

You're playing to match five numbers from 1 to 69 and then a Powerball number from 1 to 26. Pick 'em right and win the jackpot!

When you have the lucky ticket and match all the numbers correctly, the jackpot is yours - or split it if multiple tickets have the same numbers. You can choose to receive the prize as an annuity paid out in 30 graduated payments over 29 years. Or you can take a lump sum (cash value).

Wednesday's jackpot is at $1.09 billion with a cash option of $527.3 million. (Powerball)

Last Time All The Numbers Matched

Powerball's jackpot was last won on New Year's Day and since then there have been 39 consecutive drawings without anyone matching the five numbers and the Powerball number.

Odds Of Winning

Your odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million.
