The Powerball lottery jackpot has grown to a hefty $179 million for the player who has the winning ticket on Wednesday, Nov. 18. The one-time cash payout for tonight’s Powerball drawing is $138.9 million.

The winning Powerball numbers are drawn every Wednesday and Saturday at 10:59 p.m. Eastern time, with Powerball results usually posted within 5 minutes.

To win the Powerball jackpot, a player must match all five white balls in any order and the red Powerball number. The odds of picking the correct Powerball grand prize numbers are one in 292,201,338, which doesn’t change even if more players buy tickets when the jackpot is enormous.
