The $375 million Powerball drawing will be held at 10:59 p.m. and air on WABC-7 in the New York City area and Fox 29 in the Philadelphia area. Players should also check their tickets carefully because even if they don't win the jackpot, they can still win cash prizes of up $2 million.

Four second-prize tickets were sold for the most recent drawing on Saturday - two in Florida, one in NY and one in Ohio. The cash option for the jackpot is about $235 million.

The POWERBALL jackpot has rolled 18 times since the April 5, 2017, drawing and has generated more than $27.8 million in contributions to the Educational Enhancement Trust Fund (EETF). Odds of winning $100? The odds of winning $1 million - awarded for having all five numbers, without the Powerball - are 1 in 11,688,054.

And still, there's always the dream.

Should no one win tonight, the jackpot will climb to more than $400 million. And the largest single-winner pot was to a winning ticket in Florida, good for $590.5 million on May 18, 2013.

The first five regular numbers, which are white balls, are drawn out of a drum with 69 balls; one Powerball, or red ball, is drawn from a separate drum with 26 balls.

Powerball tickets are sold in 44 states, Washington D.C., U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico.

And, look at it this way: Someone has to win, eventually.
