One lucky person could win almost a quarter of a million dollars during Saturday's drawing.

The Powerball jackpot is estimated at $247 million to a single annuity winner. The jackpot has rolled about twelve times since December 28.

According to a release from the Georgia Lottery, Powerball offers two jackpot payment options: the $247 million annuity prize paid over 29 years in 30 graduated payments; or the cash option, which is approximately $142 million.

Tickets cost $2 per play. Proceeds from Powerball will benefit education in the state of Georgia.
