This is what I found on CNN.com:

(CNN) — Fantasies of buying 423 castles or 2,143 Ferraris could become reality this week now that the Powerball jackpot has topped half a billion dollars.

Wednesday’s estimated jackpot, $550 million, is the eighth largest in Powerball history. (If you’re impatient and want all your millions at once, the lump-sum cash value option is $335 million.)

Your chances of winning? 1 in 292,201,338. We know those odds won’t deter you. But just in case you want a reality check, you’re far more likely to have quintuplets naturally, get murdered at the Grand Canyon, or have extra fingers or toes.
