Feeling lucky? Connecticut residents are lining up to buy Powerball tickets as the jackpot for Saturday's drawing jumped to $535 million.

But if you won, the $535 million jackpot would have a cash payout of $340.1 million.

The jackpot is the fifth largest prize in the game’s history. The jackpot has jumped $25 million as sales soared after no winning ticket was sold for last Wednesday's drawing.

The odds of winning are one in 292.2 million — but you never know.

The drawing will be at 10:59 p.m. Saturday, Aug 19.
