The largest lotto drawing in USA history remains a $1.59 billion Powerball from January 2016.

Saturday's Powerball drawing would pay an estimated $750 million if a victor matches all six numbers.

If someone wins the Powerball on Saturday they will have the option of an immediate cash payment of $428.6 million, or the $750 million prize paid out over 29 years, according to the lottery.

While there was no grand prize victor, seven players matched all five white numbers drawn to win $1 million as well.
