There were no Powerball jackpot winners over the weekend, so the pot has ballooned to a whopping 425 million.

That's the third highest amount ever.

Every time it rolls over the jackpot increases by at least 10 million dollars.

The 425 million dollar jackpot is equal to 230.3 million dollars in cash if the winner chooses the cash payout.

The other option is an annuity, but no one has selected that in the last several years.

To get the jackpot the winner has to draw six numbers that match all six numbers selected randomly by the lottery system.

The next scheduled drawing is Wednesday.
