The jackpot for the Powerball has passed the half-a-billion dollar mark and is currently sitting at $502 million dollars. That means someone in New York could get themselves a massive payday if they take home the jackpot.

The drawing for this latest Powerball will happen tonight and someone in New York could be a mutil-millionarie overnight.

Even as the jackpot grows your odds of winning a prize stay the same.

According to the Powerball website, the odds of winning a prize during tonight's drawing is 1 in 24.9

In fact, your odds of winning a prize when there is a 1 million dollar jackpot is the same as winning the $502 million dollar jackpot. Even if more tickets are sold, your odds of winning a prize stay the same.

Of course with more tickets sold, the chances of you having to split the jackpot increases, but you still have the same odds is winning.

With every Powerball ticket you get, you have a chance of winning at least $4 all the way up to the multi-million dollar jackpot.
